About The BOLD Leadership Network

BOLD is a Choice

The year 2014 marked the first time that more students of color than whites were enrolled in American public schools. Yet according to the national data, black male educators still only make up a mere 2% of the workforce.
 

In a 2017 Johns Hopkins study, research showed that having just one black educator in elementary school for black males may reduce the risk of dropping out by 39%. Black male educators can make all the difference. 

The BOLD Leadership Network is committed to making a positive impact on the greater community by providing customized fellowship programming and an affinity group for Black male educators, expert-level consultancy for organizations, and community wide conversations to highlight the part we all play in improving experiences for all our neighbors.
