Memphis Urban League Young Professionals Aim To “Disrupt The Status Quo” With Annual Conference

Who says that young professionals (YPs) are lazy, entitled and only care about turning up? Not the members of the Memphis Urban League Young Professionals (MULYP) who is hosting their 4th annual Empowerment Conference in the heart of Memphis.

The local affiliate of the Memphis Urban League will tackle topics that affect young professionals: jobs, education, housing, health, voter disengagement and social justice.

In keeping with the theme, “Disrupt the Status Quo”, the Empowerment Conference will break out the walls of a regular hotel conference and explore downtown Memphis, TN.

Attendees will attend breakfast, workshops, and lunch in various locations throughout Downtown Memphis, and will be transported between locations using the downtown trolley system.


After the YPs, disrupt at the conference, it’s time to turn up at their annual Mixology soiree! Mixology 2016: Mysteries Of Egypt is more than just a party, but a cultural experience that celebrates the glory of the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis while empowering and awakening modern day Memphians to recognize the pharaoh that lies within. This experience will include cuisine, live entertainment, music, and art.


Your ticket is all-inclusive with unlimited food and cocktails prepared by the city’s finest chefs and mixologists. The experience will be hosted by J. Whitlow of Privileged.

Admission to Mixology is included in your registration for the conference.
