Multiracial Association of Professionals

MAP provides a fast track to meaningful connections in West Michigan. MAP offers mixers and social events to cultivate relationship opportunities for professionals of color new to the area as well as for people of all backgrounds.

MAP also connects newly relocated professionals of color to the Grand Rapids community by providing a company-specific New Employee Connection Luncheon for your organization. Over a casual lunch your employees will meet and build personal relationships with professionals of color from the Greater Grand Rapids area. During the lunch, your employee will learn about goods and services that cater to racial and ethnic communities. Date and times can be arranged to accommodate your new employee’s schedule. There is a $300 service fee that includes complimentary services for MAP corporate members.
