WASHINGTON, May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mosaic Genius is a platform to empower communities of color through innovation, networking and information, helping both individuals, social entrepreneurs and founders to shift their leadership abilities to the next level. Led by the renowned entrepreneur and author Christal Jackson and her social impact agency Head and Heart Philanthropy (HHP), the initiative has been successfully growing for the past seven years with an annual gathering at Martha's Vineyard, MA. Mosaic Genius has scoured the country to find the best-in-class roster of leaders that represent transformative ideas geared towards creating a more inclusive society.
The program for Mosaic Genius this year is going to be epic!
