‘We wanted to be able to create something that is going to not only enlighten our community about the roles that Black men really play in our country, in our homes, in our communities but also about why it’s important from a succession planning perspective to advance them in this country’

 A special summit in Downtown Detroit aimed at tackling an important issue.

The Black Men In Leadership Summit looks to encourage and lift up the next generation to careers in the boardroom.

Some big names were on hand to do just that.

We’ve heard much about diversity, equity, and inclusion in the past few years. The event took that to the next level by encouraging Black men to become successful leaders, board members, and CEOs.

Thursday was an important day for the future of Black men in our country.

Nearly 350 people made up the second annual Black Men In Leadership Summit.

“We wanted to be able to create something that is going to not only enlighten our community about the roles that Black men really play in our country, in our homes, in our communities but also about why it’s important from a succession planning perspective to advance them in this country,” said Darlene King of The Michigan Diversity Council.
