Nearly 100 Black Executives were hosted on Tuesday evening in Nashville for a night of networking and learning at the new offices of Spencer Fane Bone McAllester. The event was the vision of Studio Bank Co-Founder and community leader, Harry Allen, and Studio Bank Founders’ Advisory Board member and author of Own Your Phenomenal Self: A guide on Character, Success and Leadership and Spoken Art: Too Brave to Back Down Rita P. Mitchell. “I first reached out to Rita several months ago.
After a few conversations with Black executives new to town, I recognized that many of them wanted opportunities to connect with other folks. And so, in a conversation with Rita, I asked, ‘What if the two of us worked to try and better connect Black Executives in this city…new and “established”?’ And so, we gathered some friends, brainstormed a bit, and here we are.” The group hopes that the interest grows for companies to partner and host similar events like this in the future. We know Nashville is rich in diversity and Black executives are highly engaged in the community and civic organizations throughout the city, a perfect combination for greater impact for all of Nashville.
