Black Professionals Expo
The B.E.S.T committee is hosting the 2nd annual Black Professionals Expo on November 8, 2023, at Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School in Brampton, Ontario. Doors will be open to students, parents, and guardians at 6:00pm.
The Expo is an opportunity for Black youth to meet Black professionals and mentors in a career fair atmosphere. Families are invited to attend this event, which aims to build community and provide students with an opportunity to talk to professionals from a variety of fields. The evening will include Black professionals from various industries, a keynote speaker, food trucks, a live DJ and so much more.
Black representation matters and is key to addressing and eliminating Anti-Black Racism within the educational system. In response to Dufferin-Peel’s Catholic Community, Culture and Caring survey data, and as part of the Multi-Year Strategic plan, the B.E.S.T committee is creating opportunities and affinity spaces for Black youth, staff, and the broader community to have a voice, feel affirmed and share lived experiences. This event is designed to build bridges with Black businesses, support post-secondary pathways and transitions to the workplace, trades and beyond. Registration link
