More. Lives. Transformed.
Since 2002, MLT has transformed the careers and lives of more than 7,000 talented Black, Hispanic and Native American women and men. We have given rise to a powerful professional network of champions – peers, mentors and senior leaders – who are catalysts for a diverse, equitable and thriving America.
We believe that senior leaders drive outsize impact for their organizations, communities and society. This is especially true for senior leaders of color who are paving the way for other underrepresented minorities to see what is possible and attainable. Their leadership creates a unique multiplier effect that influences, inspires and impacts countless others to fulfill their potential and achieve their American dreams.
Over the next decade, we will see 1,000 MLT alumni at the top tiers of the private and social sectors, with 10,000 more MLT Rising Leaders in varying stages of ascent.
