Founded in 2007, CUP is a 21st century leadership development organization with over 1,500 individual members, a national network of 20,000, and 65 corporate partners spanning the financial services, law, media & entertainment, digital & technology, non-profit and public sectors, healthcare, and consumer packaged goods sectors.

Through a series of forums, leadership development programs, and peer networks, CUP empowers aspiring diverse professionals to develop connections, opportunities, and expertise that best position them for top leadership positions, resulting in transformative impact on our communities.

CUP has decided place a hold on recruiting new paid and corporate partner members in 2018. This will allow us to dedicate the year to enhancing our capacity to serve the professionals in our network. Our goal is to enhance our intake process, enable greater connectivity, have new offerings, and be able to better target our outreach based on your interests. As a result, we’re extending all 2017 memberships through 2018. Please read our FAQ for more information.
