Michigan Diversity Council presents the National Black Men in Leadership Summit. The theme for our 2021 Summit is, “Advancing Black Male Leaders: The Voice, Truths, and Power of Black Men”. Among Fortune 500 companies, less than 1% of CEOs are Black. Today there are only 4 Black CEOs according to Fortune. And over the past two decades, there have only been 18 Black CEOs in total. Companies are committing to and investing heavily in diversity and inclusion because more corporate leaders acknowledge that it makes good business sense. Despite progress over the years, Black men continue to be underrepresented in the C-Suite, boards, and executive leadership teams of businesses across the nation and still face obstacles to advancement that others don’t. This year’s summit will include a keynote address, general panel discussions, and breakout sessions that focus on topics related to leadership development and advancement. By bringing together successful Black male leaders who will offer their perspectives and experiences. Our goal is to educate, inspire, and encourage attendees to reflect on their own goals and status as they strive to advance within their respective organizations. And more than ever, we hope to help companies embrace and champion policies that dismantle an unjust system and move towards racial equity and inclusion in the workplace.
