Columbia’s Talented Tenth weekend connects young African American professionals with established business and civic leaders from across the Southeast. The goal is to facilitate the development of the next generation of leaders. This unique networking opportunity blends one on one access to top leaders, insight into the history of Columbia, and professional development with upscale social events.
The weekend’s activities provide an opportunity for young professionals to learn more about Columbia’s history, become more engaged in Columbia’s civic life and enjoy social activities around the region. Last year over 300 young professionals attended the conference.
The mission of the Talented Tenth is to raise the standard of excellence of Young Professionals in the African American community.
