The Executive Leadership Council, Institute for Leadership Development and Research has published its first-ever peer-reviewed research journal titled, “The Executive Leadership Council Journal: A Research Journal for Black Professionals.”

As the preeminent membership organization for Black professionals, The ELC believes it is our duty to provide research that speaks to the Black professional experience and that of our community. The Journal is a vehicle to doing just that and seeks to support The ELC mission by delivering research, thought leadership, best practices, op-eds, and compelling stories for the development and advancement of Black professionals.

This first edition focuses on workforce development with articles written by contributors who lay the foundation of need for greater exposure to the Black corporate experience and include:

  • The absence of Black representation in corporate board positions
  • The marginalization of and lack of support for Black women
  • The balancing act of being authentic at your job.

The ELC Institute would like to thank the contributors to this edition of the journal and look forward to receiving contributions for future editions on a variety of topics impacting Black professionals and community.
