About Us

The Council of Urban Professional’s (CUP) mission is to connect, empower, and mobilize the next generation of diverse business and civic leaders because we believe that inclusive leadership drives business success and can change the world. CUP works with rising stars who have proven that their talent, skills, and character are equal to the task of executive management; women and people of color who have demonstrated the ability and the ambition to succeed at the highest levels of leadership. We offer them role models, tools, contacts, mentorship – and inspiration – to accelerate their advancement to the next level. Operating in New York and Los Angeles, we deliver (1) compelling skill-building programs focused on accelerating careers and enhancing visibility, and (2) curated groups of top diverse professionals for impactful conversations and networking opportunities that result in community building, thought leadership, business development and provide a platform for recognizing diverse talent and inspiring service.
