The Clorox Company, a longstanding partner of MLT, has had a banner year in career advancement for minorities. Of 19 African-Americans recently promoted to Senior Manager or higher, 18 received training and coaching through MLT’s Career Advancement Program (CAP). We spoke with Erby L. Foster, Jr., Director, Diversity & Inclusion at The Clorox Company, to learn more about how diversity is embraced at Clorox – and how MLT is making an impact.
We are thrilled to announce Management Leadership for Tomorrow's newest partner: Microsoft Corp. Microsoft joins other global brands and technology powerhouses in the MLT partner network that are committed to building a robust, diverse leadership pipeline.
I was honored to participate in a Department of Education conference called Our Students, Our Leaders: Increasing the Diversity of Education Reform Leaders. I was invited to address the conference to share MLT’s proven model for creating more diverse leaders. We have had tremendous success partnering for more than a decade with private and social sector organizations to broaden their diverse leadership pipelines, and for the last few years we have been helping to develop educational sector leaders as well. I shared how we can take our strong early results in the educational sector and help scale those efforts to have a truly meaningful impact over time.
