The 2016 Brioxy Innovation Summit was a four day excursion into the hearts and minds of the “Ready Generation”; minority millennials (with some Gen Xers and Baby Boomers) who want to own their future. The final day of the summit was a trip to the Eisenhower Building at the White House, where summit attendees participated in a closed doors conference to discuss the steps the current administration is taking to ensure equity and opportunities for millennials of color. Cameras and recording devices weren’t allowed inside the Indian Treaty Room; the conference was off the record. The audio below is my personal meditation on the entire experience, something I’m bound to remember for years to come. My final interview with Ebony Costain of Ujamaa Box is at the end of the piece.
