Taking Risks and Changing the Game


AABR’s mission has always been about collaboration and connections. In that spirit, the AABR 2017 summit has embraced a theme of the “New Majority” to include the African American, Latino and Native American communities to harness the strengths and encourage strategic partnerships as the ethnic communities gradually grow into a demographic majority in the United States.

This groundbreaking approach carries diversity and inclusion practices to the next phase: the combined buying power of the collective ethnic communities will approach $4.1 trillion in 2019, making the New Majority the third largest economy in the world after the United States and China.

The 2017 AABR summit will explore this emerging force in global markets, its implications for corporate America, and underscore the importance and urgency for organizations that want to thrive and succeed as demographics shift dramatically.
