" The pursuit of equity can feel like a never-ending game of keep-away, except the other players are standing on platforms.

You can reach farther, jump higher, swipe faster for the ball, but you still won't grasp it. The distance is too great. If it drops, however, you might be asked to pick it up and clean it off. If you do a good job, maybe you'll get rewarded. Maybe."

THE SETTING

 

Our THINK TANK will be held at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. The Washington, D.C. area is the home of the largest representation of Black business leaders, making the city the optimal backdrop for leveling up our skill sets, perceptions, and connections.

THE AUDIENCE 

The LEAD360 THINK TANK executive incubator for corporate officers and

other vice-presidents responsible for

their organization's financial success.

 

This year we have received commitments from extraordinary leaders from Procter & Gamble, Genentech, Liberty Mutual, Shutterstock, and more. 

IT TAKES A VILLAGE:

THE PARTNERSHIP: 

LEAD360 + THE MCDONOUGH SCHOOL OF BUSINESS 

 

LEAD360 is teaming up with one of the most prominent business schools to tackle an enormous challenge; Executive Inequity.

With the support of our title sponsor, Liberty Mutual, this incubator provides a tangible pathway for transformation. We invite you and your company to join the village of Waymakers. 

THE PURPOSE: 

INCREASING SUCCESS

AND SUSTAINABILITY 

 

Our Corporate Think Tank brings together a select

team of thought-leading influencers to strengthen systems that yield more successful Black senior and executive corporate leaders. Through our discovery process, this executive community will birth innovative strategies that truly ensure sustainability

for Black corporate leaders. 

THE PROCESS: 

IDENTIFY | DISCOVER | DEFINE | REFINE  

 

We have created an environment where leaders are free to ideate, evaluate, discuss and plan. While this is not a destination meeting, we are excited bout the solutions that this highly curated group of transformational thinkers will reveal. 

 

Your role is to bring your experiences, challenges, and solutions to the table. Much like the focus group process, we do the work to collect those innovations and convert them to strategies and tactics.
