strategy for the
change to come.
It only changes when the face of leadership changes. Not just who the presidents and governors are, and not just who the school leaders are. This is about re-examining the place from which our business leaders, our non-profit leaders, and our major power players operate. Balance can only come if transformative voices are leading the charge.
We will continue to serve, connect and elevate leaders of color unapologetically providing the support, inspiration and understanding needed create a better future. We will also do a great many things that are new, stepping into uncharted waters and extending the reach of our work.
The Surge Ahead includes developing, elevating, and uniting more than 5,000 of these leaders by 2030, catalyzing their growth and providing the tools and connection necessary for them to wreck the nonsense they see and create the space we need.
The Surge ahead will fuel the expanding vision and efforts of those leaders, binding them tighter as a collective of changemakers, growing their knowledge of what it takes to influence change, and providing the ongoing support it takes to move mountains.
systems, our social structures... they are not broken. They just aren’t actually ours. Upon close examination, one can see that these systems were designed to benefit specific groups of specific socio-economic classes and of specific races. And, by and large, that shows up when we simply look at the wealth, power, and education gaps. Our eyes tell the story. But change is gonna come.
The Surge ahead will influence systemic change, connecting with forward-thinking leaders and allies to build collective efforts that shift policies and practices in institutions and organizations to create equitable spaces for all.
Through these three tenets of IGNITE, FUEL and TRANSFORM, we will launch new programs, establish new connections and serve new populations in order to see our mission through.
Now, choose to be a part of it. You won’t want to miss what’s a head. So here’s your next step.
