What does it take to be a black leader in todays world?
This year has been a challenging year. We started the year with everything in our world-changing because of COVID. Then, we experienced a racial reckoning in the US. For many black leaders, this time has been particularly difficult.
Join other black non-profit leaders for a virtual symposium about what it takes to be a successful black leader in today’s world.
In this interactive event, we will discuss resiliency, self-care, and the importance of mentor relationships. Our speakers will inspire you with a short keynote session, then deep dive into one of our three sub-topics in a breakout room.
Attendees will hear from each of the three speakers, then participate in one of our three breakout sessions.
Hosted, designed and led by Together SC's Black Nonprofit Leaders Group Leadership Team.
