The last few years have been characterized by unprecedented change. The ways in which we work and live have been disrupted and redefined in ways that have been unexpected and extreme. We are still coming to grips with how we might operate on the other side of The Great Reset. We need new maps for this territory; maps that are informed—but not limited—by our past.

We need to embrace the fact that, as a result of these unprecedented times, we are history in the making—creating a new path for future Black men to follow.

Whether you believe that great leaders are born or that leaders are made as they acquire critical skills, one thing is clear: the leadership beliefs that got us here, might be insufficient to get us there. As Black Men in 2022, we need to reimagine leadership.

The Black Men in Leadership conference aims to accelerate the process of redefining leadership for these times and provide crucial conversations, networking, and resources to make that happen. This gathering of professional Black men will provide counterintuitive insights and strategies backed by the latest research highlighting the state of Black men in the workplace. Register for a transformative event designed for purpose driven male leaders who are committed to overcoming adversity and developing their mindset, skillset, and toolset.
