National Black Men in Leadership Summit: Resilient Leadership
We were proud to sponsor the second annual National Black Men in Leadership Summit, Resilient Leadership: Connection, Community and Contribution. This event, presented by the Michigan Diversity Council, brought together successful Black male professionals across industries, job functions and interests and provided cross-industry networking, career development and restorative experiences.
Resilient Leadership: Connection, Community and Contribution
The theme for the 2022 summit was Resilient Leadership: Connection, Community and Contribution. Talented speakers presented sessions with applicable and practical information while providing greater opportunities to discuss championing support for Black men. Sessions provided the opportunity to connect and engage with individuals who share a passion for professional and leadership excellence in any career field. For example, a session titled “The Power of Connection and Community” included a panel of business and community leaders who discussed how connection and community building are central to conversations about identity, racial equality, justice, equity and the prevalent need to fight racism.
Thoughts from Grow team members
Several Grow team members participated in the event this year, including Ashley Pittman, People Development Group Manager. Pittman shared, “It was great to see the topics on the agenda this year, and Retaining Top Talent particularly caught my attention. That concept made my heart happy. Not only because I fully know that Black men should absolutely be viewed as top talent, but because others know it too and are willing to talk about it.”
Tony Pittman, Market Manager, reflected on a primary takeaway from the sessions. “I really enjoyed the discussion on the Mental and Spiritual Health of Black Men. The panel helped to open my mind to the thought that it’s okay to be a Christian and have a therapist. That it’s not a sign of weakness but a benefit to you and your loved ones to ensure that you are complete — mentally and spiritually.”
Devon Stanbury, Member Contact Center Supervisor, shared, “It was very interesting to hear CEOs and various company leaders speak about the positive impact that DEI initiatives have on their organizations, including improved employee morale. A diverse workforce makes an organization more competitive and impacts positive change within the community.”
We loved seeing so many of our team members participate in discussions around the topic of resilient leadership and hearing their reflections on the event. We enjoyed sponsoring this wonderful event and look forward to next year. To learn more, visit National Black Men in Leadership Summit.
