Black Leadership in this Moment: A Conversation on Obstacles and Opportunities

With the renewed attention on #BlackLivesMatter in the United States and globally, many corporations and nonprofits are grappling with how they can and should contribute to the movement for Black lives. There has been a call for individuals and institutions to invest in and support Black leadership, but what does that mean?

How can we be sure to address the needs of Black communities beyond this summer, promote Black leadership and support the organizations and leaders that are already doing the work?

Join our Executive Director, Beverly Tillery, and Board Chair Kito Huggins for a conversation moderated by activist and drag queen Peppermint, on the opportunities and obstacles behind Black leadership in this moment, and onward. As a Black Executive Director and Board Chair team, we will reflect on and discuss:

  • Why Black Leadership Matters

  • Common Obstacles Black Leaders Face and How to Address Them

  • Concrete Ways our Institutions Can Support Black Leadership

  • How to Sustain and Institutionalize these Efforts
