Journey Narratives

Connecting Journeys, Inspiring Futures

The Black Professionals Network (BPN) understands the importance of sharing narratives. Throughout the school year, BPN invites leaders (past and present) to share their journeys. Leaders provide a narrative of their journey by sharing passions, fears, successes and persons who assisted them along the way. A personal view of their life is shared by using imagery, specific details, or chronological facts from the beginning to where they are now. Members are able to connect and ask questions.
