Join us for Take the Lead: Black Community Meet-Up, co-hosted with The New Philanthropists, BLNDED Media, Google ATX, 100 Black Men of Austin, Austin Area Urban League, Measure Austin, DivInc and Huston-Tillotson University for a real-talk discussion on the importance of leadership in the community. Grab your tickets here.
Take the Lead is an opportunity for the Black community to come together in Austin, meet like-minded leaders and discuss the important roles they play on nonprofit boards. Come share your experiences, how you bring your cultural awareness and value to better serve nonprofit boards and ultimately, how Black leaders are instrumental in making Austin a more inclusive community.
