MESSAGE FROM UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE:

Our university is excited to collaborate with the Campaign for Black Male Achievement and Louisville’s Metro United Way on the launch of the Black Male Achievement Leaders in Residence Program (LiR), an ambitious initiative that will provide professional development opportunities to individuals committed to working with our young African American males. Dr. Ralph Fitzpatrick, Sr. Vice President for Community Engagement University of Louisville


PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Black Male Achievement Leaders in Residence Program in partnership with the University of Louisville is a customized 12-month leadership development experience for a cohort of 10 senior professionals in the BMA field. 

Fellows will participate in six intensive sessions—two in person, four online—designed to strengthen skills in areas such as organizational development, succession planning, resource development, strategic communications and public policy. Fellows also will share best practices with a diverse cohort of emerging BMA field leaders, students and practitioners.

BMALRP workshops will be facilitated with University of Louisville faculty and CBMA program staff to increase self-awareness for personal and professional growth, which are essential for successful leadership. Fellows will be required to read assigned publications for a deeper understanding of practices for professional and organizational growth. Mentoring, feedback and coaching will be used to build a results-driven development plan for program participants.

Mentoring, feedback and coaching will be used to build a results-driven development plan for program participants.


BENEFITS

In addition to extensive personal and professional growth, leadership training and sharing of best practices, Fellows can expect to enjoy the following benefits during and after the Leaders in Residence experience: 

  • Access to CBMA’s Fellows and BMA’s membership network, including BMA funders and influencers
  • Engagement in a “Shark Tank”-like competition involving philanthropists and investors, with a cash prize toward an investment that solves a community problem
  • Continuing education units along with a certificate of completion from the University of Louisville
  • Digital badge attached to their CBMA membership


COST

Program costs, including housing and transportation to the University of Louisville for the in-person sessions, are covered by a grant from the Campaign for Black Male Achievement and Metro United Way.


PARTICIPANTS

CBMA will select a cohort of 10 leaders from an open application process. CBMA broadly defines leaders in the Black Male Achievement field as men and women with 15 years of experience in senior management and executive level roles (no age restrictions) of all races who are responsible for advancing BMA outcomes within their organizations, networks and communities. In other instances, emerging leaders with five years of experience will be a millennial (no age restrictions) who plan to stay with their organizations post-fellowship to implement learnings to build the BMA framework within their organization or network.
