Two events held Friday in Orlando allowed news media and city officials, community partners and small businesses to preview a huge diversity career expo set for Sept. 22-26.
Mayor Buddy Dyer announced highlights for the National Black MBA Association 37th Annual Conference and Exposition, the nation’s largest diversity career expo, during a morning press conference at Orlando City Hall and an evening VIP reception at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
Dyer, elected on a platform of economic viability and the creation of high wage careers, used the press conference as an opportunity to announce programming involving 325 on-site corporations that will seek to recruit top talent.
Hosted by National Black MBA's Central Florida chapter, more than 12,000 job seekers are expected to attend the event at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. In addition to on-site recruitment, highlights of September’s conference will include job matching, an exhibit hall, support from 450 corporate partners and sponsors, over $80,000 in prizes, keynote speakers and more.
