Tunua Thrash-Ntuk, Executive Director, and Irvin Shannon, Program Manager, of WACDC have invited industry leaders to inspire, mentor, and teach the young men of South Los Angeles. Industry experts will impart the tools necessary to become a successful entrepreneur.
Invited speaker, Sheila P. Coates, Owner and Personal Branding Expert, of BYOB (Be Your Own Brand!) and Financial Investor and Founder of The Kemet Institute, Rashaun Williams, will lead workshops geared towarded financial literacy, personal and business branding, and business plan development.
