Kathryn Finney - YPCC 2017 Keynote Speaker

Kathryn Finney, our YPCC 2017 Keynote Speaker

Cascade Engineering is hosting a one-day professional development conference for young professionals of color in West Michigan on Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017.  Last year, the conference convened over 150 young professionals of color at Steelcase University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This year, we are happy to have Spectrum Health as the Platinum Sponsor and BL2END (Business Leaders Linked to Encourage New Directions), returning as the Exclusive Young Professional Partner whose mission directly aligns with the purpose and intent of this conference.

Kathryn Finney, a tech entrepreneur, social media visionary, “women in” advocate, investor, writer and television correspondent, will keynote the conference inspiring young professionals to become a measurable asset and how to break through barriers for personal and professional impact. In addition to the keynote, participants will have the opportunity to engage in small break-out sessions focused around entrepreneurship, telling their story to leverage their career, mentorship, paying it forward in their community, just to name a few.

More information will be coming your way soon!
