ABOUT THE EVENT /

The Business Leadership Institute is a one day, power-packed conference filled with seminars and workshops geared toward industry best practices in leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

 

The BLI is the only business leadership conference within the Chicagoland area committed to advancing minority leadership skills and career advancement to the C-Suite. 

The 2018 BLI will focus on leadership through the lens of influence. From uncovering unconscious bias behavior to encouraging “disruptive” innovation, our goal is to share best practices that will inspire all leaders to lead in ways necessary to promote growth and sustainability.

Diversity Career Fair.
