EMPIRE STATE OF MIND COLLOQUIUM SERIES is part of a larger effort of the Urban Mosaic Center for Social Justice to extend the content of our programming to connect to the possibilities of the 21st century global community.
Our programs are uniquely situated in Brooklyn embracing the notion of the urban center as the meeting place of global citizenry. Cities are always contending with economic, social, and demographic changes. It is our goal to equip individuals with the knowledge base and resources to stay ahead of the constantly changing urban landscape.
To that end, the Empire State of Mind Colloquium Series seeks to create a leading presence locally, nationally, and internationally by facilitating programming that engages and encourages the exploration of the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, ability, language, and sexual orientation as it informs our professional and personal lives.
We believe this facilitates a dynamic intellectual community where we are able to address and tackle larger societal issues and imagine new ways of being in the 21st century.
Our upcoming Economic Empowerment Summit will provide particpants with the business and entrepreneurial insights needed to thrive in the 21st century global climate. This interactive working summit will focus on the following:
SOCIAL JUSTICE ISSUES IN URBAN PLANNING
STARTING YOUR OWN BUSINESS
BUSINESS STRUCTURE & TAX IMPLICATIONS
BUSINESS PLANNING & FISCAL MANAGEMENT
