There has been a lot of talk from corporate America about standing with the black community, but now it is time for action. Black professionals would like to see investment directly into black talent and black suppliers.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) July 09, 2020
Black professionals make up 10% of college graduates, but less than 1 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs and only 3 percent of executive/senior manager-level roles according to a study by the Center for Talent Innovation. The result of these struggles has led to thirty-eight percent of black millennials saying they are considering leaving their jobs to start their own company and Brian Lee is creating a platform to empower black professionals to become millionaires through education and professional development.
A key part of Brian’s plan includes partnering with corporate America to make good on their diversity statements. Lee says, “There has been a lot of talk from corporate America about standing with the black community, but now it is time for action. Black professionals would like to see investment directly into black talent and black suppliers. They also want professional development and to see diverse people in company board seats and in the C-Suite.”
Realizing that many companies do not know where to find black talent Brian launched Black Health and Wealth to provide access to a network of black talent and world class suppliers so that every single Fortune 500 company can take action.
Brian Lee is a seasoned executive that has worked behind the scenes on advertising campaigns from brands like Verizon, Microsoft, and many more. His own struggles moving up the corporate ladder inspired him to create the Black Health and Wealth platform that helps guide Black professionals through corporate America and entrepreneurship. His goal is to create one million Black millionaires that will lead to new Black Wall Streets all over the world.
In an effort to create one million black millionaires over the next 10 years, Brian has outlined a multi-phased approach to circulating the black dollar. Brian believes that building the Black Wall Streets of modern times needs to be a digital first approach and his plan starts with building a platform that fortifies the black professional in corporate America, ladders up to black business/entrepreneurship and then finally the black community.
Under phase one, Lee will provide education and professional development to professionals within the network, helping them navigate through corporate America in addition to resources for entrepreneurs. In phase two, the company will introduce a black business network to centralize all Black businesses to an easy-to-access network in addition to working with major corporations to diversify their supplier strategy.
