CBMA Promise of Place Webinar: A Focus on Excellence – Raising The Bar For Cities Supporting Black Men & Boys!
Join our network of cross-sector leaders with the 2016 “Promise of Place Webinar Series,” based on our 2015 report “Promise of Place: Cities Advancing Black Male Achievement.” These webinars will offer specific strategies that encourage cities, networks, organizations and individuals to make tangible progress in their efforts to improve life outcomes and opportunities for Black men and boys.
How do we mobilize and leverage our commitment, relationships and community assets to establish excellence as the standard for the well-being of Black men and boys? The Promise of Place report highlighted 3 key values that cities must embrace to make progress toward this reality:
- Collective Work and Responsibility: Creating Space for All Concerned, Bound Together by Commitment and Accountability
- Respect and Recognition: Affirming and Re-imagining Black Men and Boys as Assets in Communities
- Bold Goals and Outcomes: Setting Aspirational Goals to Guide Collective Work
Each webinar will offer specific strategies to encourage cities, networks, organizations and individuals to make tangible progress in their efforts to offer promise in the places that Black men and boys reside, as well as provide insights on future city based efforts that CBMA will coordinate. We will also spotlight a different city and the progress they are making to become places of promise for Black men and boys.
