"The Minority Male Initiative conference has consistently been a platform for empowerment and growth," said Dr. Fidel Wilson, event coordinator and director of One Stop Services and Regional Locations at Brookdale. "This year's milestone marks a decade of impactful engagement, fostering a community where young men can thrive and embrace their potential."

Dr. Daniel Jean is set to deliver the conference’s keynote address. Jean rose from abject poverty, progressing from a 1.9 grade point average to becoming an author, consultant and an administrator at Montclair State University. 

The conference will connect students with professionals in five key career clusters: 1.) science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM; 2.) mainframe computing communications media; 3.) health science; 4.) business and social science; and 5.) show business and entertainment.
