Northwest Arkansas is the home of the world’s #1 retailer, Walmart Inc., two additional Fortune 500 companies, The University of Arkansas, and over 1300 supplier/vendor satellite offices. With an overall growing population, one can not, also, ignore the significant Hispanic population within the area.
Whether it’s to attend college or work/intern for one of the prominent companies within the area, many Young Professionals are transplants in need of a strong support system and guidance. And quite frankly, many minorities are in need of allies .
This makeup of Northwest Arkansas presents a unique opportunity for Urban League Young Professionals to positon ourselves as a community pipeline to acclimating within this area. As we enter Year 2, our focus will be Lifting As We Climb: Our Prescription for Northwest Arkansas. Our strategic plan directly focuses on the key issues surrounding life in NWA for a minority.
Arkansas Urban League Young Professionals is an auxiliary of the Urban League of the State of Arkansas Inc.
