Black Affinity Conference

February 23–25, 2018
Babson College, Wellesley Campus

This theme-driven conference was designed by a committee of alumni, current students, faculty, and administrators to present a program of professional development and networking.

The event includes the presentation of the Black Affinity Achievement Award, established in 2004 to recognize an alumnus/alumna or community member who distinguishes themselves in their given field and supports the Babson community to strengthen its commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2017 Black Affinity Conference to explore its theme “Entrepreneuring While Black.” To learn more about the 2017 conference please refer to the blog reflecting on this experience.
