Black Leadership Academy

Helping to accelerate the progression of Black leaders in their organizations

We have a deep and longstanding commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in business, in society, and within our firm. While this commitment is not new, recent events demonstrating racial injustice for Black communities have prompted us to take stock of the actions we have been pursuing in support of racial justice and equity, and we are committed to doing more to accelerate our existing programs.

Our Offerings

We have developed the Black Leadership Academy, composed of two capability-building programs, to equip Black leaders with the capabilities, mindsets, behaviors, and network needed to achieve their professional aspirations.

Black Executive Leadership Program

Paving the way to the C-suite for senior executives

Designed for senior executives looking to ascend to C-suite roles, this program focuses on building the leadership capabilities and network that distinguish successful executives to help them achieve the next critical step in their careers.

Management Accelerator

Growing into senior leadership roles

Designed for high-performing, early- to mid-career managers aspiring to take the challenging leap into senior leadership.
