It’s time to flip the script on leadership.

The Leadership Convention, presented by NAAAP, is for those who aspire to push the boundaries of what it means to lead. People from all professional and cultural backgrounds are welcome to attend and connect with and be inspired by unconventional leaders, creative visionaries, and bold disruptors. The three-day event begins with a powerful and engaging ERG Summit, continues with an amazing line-up of inspiring speakers and thought-provoking workshops, a Diversity Career Fair, and concludes with a spectacular Gala featuring the NAAAP 100 & Inspire Awards presented by United Airlines.

Make a difference.
Become a Convention Volunteer.

We aren’t meant to be put in our place.
We’re meant to carve out our own.

This year’s theme is The Unconventional Leader. Lead Boldly.
It’s meant to inspire conversations and deeper thinking around the kind of leaders we want to be.

It’s meant to open our eyes to see that there are many different paths to leadership, that we can learn from each other’s journeys, and empower one another to lead in unexpected ways…

With compassion and understanding.
With grace and humility.

So let’s come together to lift each other up.

Let’s come together to push the boundaries of what it means to lead.

Kansas City.

What’s the world saying?
