The Office of Academic Equity (OAE) at Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration (JHBC) is hosting its annual event, "The Voice with African American Men," which will take place on Feb. 22 from 6-7:30 p.m. This year, the event theme will be, "I’m Graduating! What’s Next?" The event, offered both virtually and in person, will focus on providing essential information and support for African American men as they prepare to enter the workforce. This event is free and open to the public.

"The Voice" serves as a vital platform to address the ongoing challenges faced by African American men in the labor market. Racial discrimination persists, disproportionately impacting African American men, who often find themselves at a disadvantage. Studies show that during recessions, African Americans are typically the first to be let go, and during recoveries, they are the last to be hired.

"The Voice" will showcase the experiences of individuals, primarily African American men, who will share insights and recommendations for successfully navigating the transition into the workforce.

To register for the event, visit the in-person registration page or the virtual registration page.
