This nonprofit fiscal sponsorship between Black Alliance of Colleges and Employers (BACE) and YWCA Metropolitan Chicago aligns the pillars of Campus, Career and Research to level economic access and opportunity for Black talent in workspace and higher education with a focus on serving Black Veterans and Military Families. This aligns with YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

With BACE V-Suite, we collaborated with FourBlock as they launched a career readiness cohort in Chicago. Registration is open for the fall 2024 cohort.

The PhD Project

Diversity isn’t a box to be checked on a business plan. It’s a requirement for an effective, competitive 21st century workforce. When the people at the front of the classroom look like the people sitting at the desk, when everyone knows that their unique abilities are recognized and valued, when everyone has an opportunity to succeed, our campuses are stronger, our companies are stronger, we are all stronger.

Creating a more diverse workforce demands the same spirit of innovation, entrepreneurialism and leadership that built our great companies. It’s why at The PhD Project, we’re building diversity by targeting the place where great leaders are created: America’s business schools. Through our work, these schools today have a more diverse faculty of inspired PhDs who serve as mentors and role models for a new generation of Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic American, and Native American business leaders.
