The Black Executive Exchange Program (BEEP) student symposium was held April 8-9, 2013, on the campuses of Givens and the Anheuser-Busch School of Business. This program brought minority executives from across the country to Harris-Stowe State University's campus. The purpose of BEEP, a National Urban League initiative, is to deliver career awareness preparation to students who attend historically black colleges and universities and to expose them to minority executives in a variety of fields.
More than 100 students had the opportunity to interact with executives from Enterprise Holdings, Boeing, Wyman Center, Regions Bank, AXA Advisors, Urban League and St. Louis Integrated Health Network. Students and BEEP executives engaged in discussions on personal branding, civic and community engagement, as well as resume and interview workshops.
Kathy Osborn, Executive Director, Regional Business Council, gave the keynote address for the conference, which was themed “Preparing Leaders for Global Competitiveness.”
