"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. Inspired by this quote, the Unite Inc., leadership conference “Won't Back Down: Leadership in Crisis” ensured that COVID-19 would not stop HBCU student leaders from around the country from receiving high-quality leadership training. This 3-day conference took place on July 16-18, 2020.

This virtual conference was designed for student leaders currently enrolled at HBCUs across the country. We tailored the interactive workshops to suit the needs of SGA, Campus Courts, Campus Activity/Programming Boards, and NPHC leaders. We served over 300 from 38 HBCUs
