Hosted by WCNY's Equality Task Force
Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT) is a national nonprofit attacking inequality via 3 key pillars: Economic Mobility - high-trajectory jobs that provide immediate and lasting economic mobility for individuals and their families; Diverse Leaders - senior leaders who elevate others in their companies and communities; and Diverse Institutions - Institutions that create less challenging pathways for minorities to reach their potential.
Join us for a session with MLT to learn about a new initiative, Black Equity at Work Certification, which provides the roadmap and the recognition necessary to enable and encourage employers across America to pursue Black equity with the same rigor and results orientation as their pursuit of earnings and other key priorities. Director, Business Development of the program, Crystal Mullins (PENN ENG, WG) will be joining to share more about the initiative.
