FEATURED SPEAKERS! 2021 Virtual Empowerment and Policy Conference



Marc Morial
President & CEO, National Urban League
Marc Morial is President and CEO of the National Urban League, the nation’s largest historic civil rights and urban advocacy organization. The National Urban League has been at the forefront of many of the most pressing issues facing Black America - from supporting the integrity of the 2020 Census to ensure fair representation, to weighing in on President Biden’s picks for Attorney General, and suing the U.S. Postal Service and Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to protect voting rights. These and other efforts to protect civil rights are a part of a bigger story about the opportunity to build a strong African American agenda.
Dr. Michael McAfee

Dr. Michael McAfee serves as the President and CEO of PolicyLink, a national research and action institute focused on advancing racial and economic equity. He leads the organization’s efforts to advance policies to enable everyone to participate in an equitable economy, live in a community of opportunity, and thrive in a just society. He was a catalyst for a new and growing body of work – corporate racial equity – and creation of the Corporate Racial Equity Advantage. He believes in the urgency of now and is determined to ensuring equity is not just another catchphrase but one that realizes the true promise of racial and economic inclusion.
