Advancing Black Male Leaders: The Voice, Truths, and Power of Black Men

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.



Connect and engage with Black male leaders who share a passion for professional development and leadership advancement in multiple industries. By bringing together successful Black male leaders who will offer their perspectives and experiences, we hope 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 help level the playing field and move toward greater representation of Black male leaders within their organizations.
