Our Programs

Our Purpose

Black professionals are underrepresented in key management positions in schools, businesses and professional settings. In the face of prejudicial stereotyping, Black professionals are often underestimated and undervalued and least likely to be promoted when compared to their peers. It is no secret the wage discrepancy, which manifests to income inequality between Black community and other communities.

Furthermore, cultural and communication barriers often make it difficult for Black professionals to seek mentorship, a key component to professional growth.

Our Belief
