Black Mayors & Leadership Series
In early 2021 Thinkinc.played a key role in bringing to life the Black Mayors & Leadership Series, featuring Mayors Lori E. Lightfoot of Chicago, Ras J. Baraka of Newark and Sylvester Turner of Houston.
The March virtual events highlighted how the absence of a coherent national vision the past four years have thrust Black mayors into new dimensions of leadership.
“Until you see a change of those sitting at the table, you will not see a change.”
— Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner on Diversity & Inclusion, 2021 Black Mayors Series
The virtual events were presented by our client the Institute for the Study of Societal Issues; as well as the Department of African American Studies & African Diaspora Studies at the University of California, Berkeley; with the Great Cities Institute at the University of Illinois Chicago.
