On Sunday June 26th, the Men IQ Network will celebrate a year of consistent panels. We began this series last June around the time of Fathers Day to create an opportunity for young Black men to dialogue with more seasoned men about about the lessons they've learned in maintain their career, their sense of purpose & their family. That series took us on a rollercoaster ride of topics ranging from purpose to mental health to financial competency.
Our anniversary event will take the form of a Men's Summit. This summit will offer an assortment enriching programs consisting of a career & wellness fair, several performances, two special guest speakers and a panel of fathers. Throughout the fair attendees will be able to meet with representatives from skilled trades careers, entrepreneurial incubators.

The summit will also feature special performances from The Poet Has Spoken, Lucky The Poet and Nikki Demasa. Finally our program will conclude with a panel of fathers speaking on timeless wisdom they have gained throughout their journey of fatherhood.
