Black History Month – Year of the Tiger – Kickoff Mixer
February 1 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
On Tuesday February 1, 2022, the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA) and Black Tech Link will co-host a networking mixer to kickoff Black History Month. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with San Diego’s most brightest managers, executives, entrepreneurs, and professionals.
The event will also host a variety of local community organizations that are committed to fostering a region of economic well-being and prosperity for San Diego’s Black and minority residents. Partnering organizations at a glance include Multicultural Health Foundation, Come Through Media, San Diego Urban League Young Professionals, SD Black Professionals, Young Echelon, and Black Entrepreneurs Leaders and Learners.
This event will also be a continuation as well as in-person special edition of the NSBE Professional SD “First Tuesdays’ that have been virtually held since the start of the pandemic. Event will showcase a panel titled “Pivoting Your Career During the Pandemic as a Black Professional featuring successful thought leaders, innovators, influencers, and career mentors.
NSBE Professionals San Diego Chair, Jayton Harps, stated, “During the pandemic it’s been challenging for Black professionals to navigate their careers in the US economy. Although the unemployment rate is falling back down, Black workers are still affected. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Black workers were the only race that doubled in jobless rates in December compared to other groups. We’re excited to be hearing from Black professionals as they share their stories on how they excelled during a time of uncertainty and beyond.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring their resume if seeking employment. Tickets are free for NSBE & NBMBAA members and $25 for non-members.
