The D.C. based BroccoliCon brings forward thinkers from around the world who are passionate about building thriving Black communities by utilizing their skills, professional resources, and tools to move from advocacy to action. 

The conference will take place May 5 and 6 under the theme of “Black Change Weekend.” The conference engages participants in dynamic exchanges of ideas, solutions and resources that drive local impact on a global scale and aides in their pursuit of change – personally and professionally. 

“We are excited to be back with great mission-aligned partners like AARP, Converse, Diageo, Indeed, JP Morgan Chase, Live Nation Urban, Wasserman Music, Sirius XM Radio, YouTube’s Future Insider Program and more,” co-founder Brandon McEachern said.

BroccoliCon features strategically curated programs including keynote speakers, workshops, panels, fireside chats, networking events and more catered to participants wanting to drive cultural and personal impact.

Along with keynote speakers and panels, there will be unparalleled learning experiences in networking, wellness, inclusive technology and innovation, leadership and professional development, and financial literacy. In-person sessions of BroccoliCon will take place at the Gathering Spot in Washington, DC.

“What I’m most happy about this year is our focus on jobs.  Participants will have an opportunity to interact with top companies and potentially land their dream job while acquiring a deeper understanding of how to better serve their communities,” McEachern said.

Tickets are limited, so participants are encouraged to register now to ensure they get an opportunity to attend. All sessions will be available virtually at
