Last May, MLT’s 10th Anniversary Gala and Rising Leaders Conference kick-started a transformational year that has accelerated our journey to develop 1,000 senior leaders and a pipeline of 10,000 more coming behind them. I am excited to share a few of our accomplishments since MLT’s 10th Anniversary celebration.
The Africa Business Fellowship is a unique opportunity for professionals to promote U.S.-African business relationships through cultural exchange. Through this highly competitive Fellowship, 10-15 professionals – US citizens and permanent residents – will gain unprecedented exposure to and hands-on experience working in one of several top African-led businesses.
MLT is proud to be a part of the Citi Foundation’s Pathways to Progress initiative. Through the launch and first program year of MLT Ascend, MLT and the Citi Foundation are helping low-income urban youth in the U.S. develop the workplace and leadership skills necessary to compete in today’s economy.
Based on 12 years of experience working with our partners and helping thousands of African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans accelerate their careers, we have developed an employer playbook that offers concrete solutions to help companies and social sector organizations expand their diverse talent pipelines.
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.
