Community and capabilities. Black Leaders Program strengthens both. This one-week intensive leadership program creates the space and support to help you delve into the challenges and opportunities of being a Black leader today. Through reflection and connection with people who share similar experiences, you will create a meaningful network to guide you on your leadership journey.
This is a leadership program unlike any other. Yes, you’ll gain valuable skills and insights from faculty to bring back to your organization. But it’s about much more than that. It’s about expanding the way you see the world, personally and professionally — so you can change it.
Through real-time, faculty-led lectures, small-group exercises, guest speakers, and facilitated conversations, you’ll enhance your leadership capability. You’ll learn to more effectively manage power, influence others even when you don’t have formal authority, and communicate more effectively. You’ll explore the tensions between your identity and the social and institutional barriers that could block your future success. Most important, you’ll gain new skills, insights, and approaches to grow as a leader. And you’ll put all that learning into action by working on a capstone project — a personal career advancement project that kicks off while on campus and continues for several months with small-group coaching and feedback from peers.
Black Leaders Program is a learning journey of action, shared experience, growth, and transformation.
