Black Male Achievement Leaders In Residence Program

The Campaign for Black Male Achievement Leaders in Residence Fellowship at the University of Louisville is a professional development program for leaders in the Black Male Achievement field. Selected fellows are high-performing, well-established BMA leaders and emerging leaders working toward catalyzing systemic change. The curriculum design is based on building and sustaining growth in peer-to-peer environments.

CBMA and our partners the University of Louisville and Metro United Way are excited to announce the recipients of the 2019 Leaders in Residence Fellowship at the University of Louisville! 

These selected individuals have been chosen to take part in this professional development fellowship geared towards helping leaders in the Black Male Achievement field to catalyze systemic change in their work on behalf of Black men and boys.

Introducing Our 2019 Cohort!


FELLOWSHIP OVERVIEW

The Black Male Achievement Leaders in Residence Fellowship, offered 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.

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

Fellowship 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.
