Apply to BCBR
Extraordinary demand from talented, qualified Black leaders for the Black Corporate Board Readiness (BCBR) program obliterates the myth of a pipeline problem. Applications for BCBR cohorts are reviewed by a combination of team members, BCBR program alumni, and our Program Advisory Committee. Space is limited in each cohort. Most participants are sponsored by their employers.
Key criteria for program acceptance include:
- Extensive (10+ years) senior leadership experience (C-suite, GM, or equivalent)
- Entrepreneurs who have built and sold companies
- Prior service on non-profit governance boards
- Domain experience of interest to public or private corporate boards (e.g., qualified financial expert, cybersecurity, supply chain, etc.)
- Approval of current employer, if applicable, for corporate board service
The program is open to executives with extensive senior leadership experience or equivalent span of control (e.g., CEO or GM), as well as executives who have successfully built and sold companies, and who are interested in public or private corporate board service. Please contact us here with your questions.
After you complete the application form, we will review your background and notify you of acceptance into the program.
