Graduates of the Indianapolis Bar Leader Series VII John Henning, David Jones, Mary Ann Fleetwood, Reynold Berry and Leslie Gibson organized and conducted a “kick-off” orientation program for B.L.I.N.G. (“Business Leadership in the Next Generation”) at the Madame Walker Theatre Center on June 12, 2010.
B.L.I.N.G. offers an intensive financial training course for IPS students with an interest in entrepreneurism. During the four-week program, the B.L.I.N.G. students will open a bank account, learn marketing strategies and develop their own business plan. Their summer culminates with an opportunity to implement their plan and sell their wares at convention spaces leased by B.L.I.N.G. at the Indiana Black Expo.•
