Gathering will set agenda, create continuing network of nation’s emerging leaders
“Leadership By Design; Ensuring Our Legacy” strategy sessions will address the NAACP “Game Changer” Initiatives that strengthen our ability to be effective advocates individually and collectively effecting real social change in our communities. Throughout the weekend, economic development and entrepreneurship; civic engagement and voting rights; criminal justice; education; health advocacy and environmental justice are topics for discussion. Professionals in finance, education, political leaders, lawyers, healthcare providers, environmentalists, and leaders in the civil rights and social justice arena, will lend their knowledge to help create innovative and effective strategies for advancing positive change for our families, communities and our society.
Since its inception in 2005, Leadership 500 has served as a fertile training ground for leadership development, professional networking, partnerships and effective civil rights and social justice advocacy for more than 3,500 mid-level professionals who have attended the Summit. They have returned to their respective professions in the public and private sector, empowered as leaders, to contribute in a meaningful way to their place of business and to their respective community.
Founded in 1909, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization. With more than ½ million members in state/area conferences, branches and youth units, throughout the United States and abroad, the NAACP is the paramount voice of advocacy for civil rights, social justice, and equal opportunity for all in communities throughout the world.
