On July 19th 2017, we will kick off the new 2017 – 2018 Calendar year with a celebration of Community and Diversity. As your incoming EO DC Chapter President, the theme for this year is to build a stronger internal and external community and celebrate our diversity as leading entrepreneurs. We are an incredible chapter made up of so many rich and diverse experiences and backgrounds where we have the opportunity to learn and grow and celebrate our similarities and differences that make up the EO DC Chapter. What better opportunity than the newly opened Museum of African American History & Culture.
WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER! #TogetherWeCanMoveMountainsEODC
