The current system often only rewards a select few individuals, which concentrates power and limits the voices of all Black community stakeholders.
Our program aims to change this by fostering a more equitable and collaborative approach to Black community-based talent development and leadership. We believe that by connecting individuals with similar talent and drive, we can create a more robust and shared talent pool that can scale community-based advocacy and municipality-based service.
This program will serve as a direct pipeline to build more diversity, equity, and inclusiveness on planning boards, civic committees, and other decision-making bodies in the city. By supporting the growth and development of Black leaders in the community, we can create a more inclusive and equitable environment for all. Join us and let’s work together to create a better future for the City of Pittsfield.
