Muppies Annual Conference (also known as MAC) is not only Muppies’ flagship event, it is also the premier global event for Muslim professionals. Now in its fifth year, the conference has grown to cover a variety of industries, perspectives, and Muslims of varying backgrounds.
Time is a ticking, and you may be wondering, should I attend?
Read on to see why the answer is a resounding yes!
With speakers from finance, media, social enterprise, health, technology and more, it’s hard to not find a panelist who touches on what you’re interested in. What’s more important, however, is that these speakers are all committed to furthering Muslim professionals. If you’re on the job hunt (and even if you’re not), we’re happy to say people have gotten jobs directly through the conference in the past!
Speaking of networking– be sure to check out our Saturday evening social as well. At the end of the day, we’re all here to connect with fellow Muslim professionals, and are proud that the conference fosters a true culture of collaboration and community.
The MAC Steering Committee also carefully selected Convene on Adams street in Chicago to host this year’s Conference. Say goodbye to stuffy ballrooms and say hello to a modern events space that promises to be chic. (Seriously, just check out these pictures of the events space.)
While we could go through and highlight key speakers, the beauty of MAC is that the conference brings a host of professionals from varying industries all under one roof.
We promise you’ll learn just as much from the speakers as from fellow attendees – who are travelling from different countries and areas within the U.S..
And if you are curious, check out our full lineup of speakers:
