Women, Diversity, & Power at the 2019 HOPE Global Forum
By John Hope Bryant, Founder, Chairman, and CEO, Operation HOPE, Inc.
Hundreds of registered delegates, representing 49 states and over 60 countries, attended the 2019 HOPE Global Forum at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta in May. They experienced a wide array of leaders and influencers who discussed everything from entrepreneurship– to leadership– to wellness– to wealth-building strategies.
The Forum had ‘billionaires, next to millionaires, next to thousand-aires, next to someone trying to ‘buy some air.’ With everyone sharing the same space and place and time — with the same goal of shared uplift and shared aspiration. Open source empowerment. A pathway, to prosperity.
The Forum also included a diverse group of speakers, including women and people of color, who aim to change the world. Speakers like T.I.; Jack Dorsey, Founder & CEO of Twitter and Square; Janice Bryant Howroyd, Founder & CEO of ActOne Group; Dr. Bernice A. King, CEO of The King Center; Susan Somersille Johnson, CMO of Suntrust; Thasunda Dockett, CEO of Chase Consumer Banking; Kat Cole of FOCUS Brands; and many more.
These folks understand how the game works and took to the stage to share that message with YOU.
