The Leadership & Sustainability Institute for Black Male Achievement’s Social Innovation Accelerator is excited to announce its inaugural cohort of Black Male Achievement (BMA) Social Innovators
-- leaders who have shown tangible results in improving the life outcomes of black men and boys and
who have the passion and potential to increase their national leadership and impact.
The BMA Social Innovation Accelerator is one of four strategies that the LSI is implementing to provide capacity building, strengthen networks, promote the field, and showcase and spread what works.
A selection committee
composed of 40 issue experts, funders, and practitioners reviewed applications from more than 70 organizations from nine cities across the country and selected this group from a field of 22 finalists
. The BMA Innovators were chosen because of their evidence of effectiveness as well as their potential to scale their work to advance systemic change and become national spokespeople on behalf of the field of black male achievement.
Please join us in congratulating these remarkable BMA Social Innovators
