The Howard E. Mitchell Memorial Conference is one of a few premier networking events on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, established in honor and remembrance of the Wharton School’s second tenured African-American Professor, Howard E. Mitchell. Mitchell was a scholar in Management and a strong advocate for corporate responsibility and diversity in the workplace. This conference was created to reflect not only his goals and philosophy, but also to invigorate the networks between students of color, alumni, and contacts within our industry-leading sponsors.

This year's conference theme is “Taking Control: Empowering Black Professionals for the Future,” and we will be fortunate enough to have the extraordinary Ms. Grace Vandecruze, as our keynote speaker in addition to our wonderful additional speakers. Ms. Vandecruze is the Founder and Managing Director of Grace Global Capital, LLC., a firm specializing in financial advisory. The 2018 H.E.M.M. Conference will begin on Thursday, September 13th, at 7:30 p.m. and run through Friday, September 14th, 3:00 p.m. Admission to the conference is free with registration required.
