About the Black Women in Leadership Affinity Group
We are a courageous group of Black woman leaders who support one another to nurture and live our power, bolster engagement in personal and professional development, and leverage our network to be a catalyst for positive change in our communities. Given the impact of historical and existing structural racism that we must surmount, the affinity group aims to engage authentically, bringing our talent and vulnerability together to transcend societal norms. Through trainings, conversations, topical education, tools, and other resources, Black women leaders will learn and practice the teaching principles and habits of EDI-focused adaptive leadership skills.
The Social Current Leadership Through Affinity groups support leaders with shared cultural backgrounds as they build relationships, develop professional networks, and engage in training.
Current* groups include:
Through the work of the affinity groups, emerging and senior leaders will develop solutions and address barriers that keep persons of color from advancing at rates equal to their counterparts. These leaders will have access to trainings that include adaptive leadership, psychological safety, and rEvolutionary leadership. Leaders will also receive mentoring from EDI cohort leaders.
* These four affinity groups are the result of a grant-supported inaugural project, but they are just the beginning. We recognize that there are marginalized groups not represented here and we hope to expand to other racial, ethnic, or cultural backgrounds, including, but not limited to, LGBTQ+, those with disabilities, and those considered Second Acts.
