Black Leadership Institute
Skills for Change is scaling an education-based, paid training social enterprise – Black Leadership Institute (BLI) – by expanding professional leadership development skills and training modules within the context of Anti-Black Racism for individuals in private institutions and through the development of a new corporate stream. The project aims to support Black and racialized professionals on their journeys of creating more inclusive and diverse work environments, while becoming changemakers in their communities and workplaces. Using a sliding scale pricing model, SFC will offer specialized support to corporate clients and will use the revenue generated to subsidize the cost of the program for Black and racialized women living on low-incomes.
