The HBCU CDM was a great way for me to connect with like-minded individuals from across the country. I truly enjoyed learning more about ways I can make a difference in the workplace!

Jenele Williams, Graduate Student,
Hampton University

The HBCU Career Development Marketplace provided vision and professional enhancement for students, networking for directors/advisors, and inspiration for all in attendance. I was amazed at the caliber of session leaders and speakers, who challenged each attendee to envision and work hard to achieve the best version of their future self. I am glad my students and I had this experience – I can’t wait until the next conference!

Dannita Trice, Assistant Director of Employer Relations,
Virginia State University

I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of students and employers who attended the market. As a graduate of an HBCU and now an administrator at one, my heart was filled with pride to see such excellence in one room. I would recommend this opportunity to any student!
