Give your employees the benefits of Temple’s exceptional professional leadership training coupled with a unique opportunity for learning in an affinity group environment.

Despite companies’ best efforts and intentions to hire, retain and promote a diverse workforce research shows that people from diverse backgrounds are still more likely to leave their organizations due to feeling less supported.

Created in response to the need for effective professional leadership development training that also centers BIPOC employees’ experiences and unique challenges in the workplace, the BIPOC Leadership Series will prepare high-performing individuals for promotion into management and executive roles.

Across three, full-day sessions participants will hear from leading faculty and subject matter experts affiliated with the Fox School, spend significant time in breakout sessions discussing and learning from each other, and develop a support system to boost their careers.
