" In this challenging time for Black corporate leaders, we need an organization that is bold and transformational in its executive development…LEAD360 is that organization.
We invite your organization to join us in the quest to ensure the success and sustainability of our corporate village."
- Dr. EW Walton
Chief Executive Officer,
Our LEAD360 WYN Academy Live serves as a cross-section of academic question and corporate action. This conclave of leaders aims to chart a five-year pathway to ensure acceleration and sustainability for corporate leaders of color.
LEAD360 has invited a select group of executive leaders to engage in a two-day live session. Organizational participants representing brands such as Liberty Mutual, Proctor and Gamble, Genentech, and more will be tasked to produce realistic strategies to increase the success of Black business leaders.
Our WYN Academy Live 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 LEAD360 WYN Academy Live networking 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.
This "Hackathon" approach brings leaders together in a collaborative environment where several teams compete to create solutions for the most significant issues that derail upward mobility and success among Black leaders. This intense problem-solving environment will facilitate the creation of realistic and innovative ideas and concepts to advance Black leadership. In addition, participants have an exciting opportunity to work and learn from individuals from various fields with multiple interests and skills, all collaborating to solve the same problem.
At the end of the hackathon, participants will share these strategies related to building a sustainable model of success, retaining the next generation of leaders, creating both equity and inclusion in the supplier diversity process, and preparing Black leaders for paid Board positions with their respective companies in support of their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals.
