A Matter Of Truth

There is no dispute that systemic and institutional racism has had damaging effects on the career aspirations of our children. This dynamic reveals itself in limited access to resources that help black and brown children explore the full range of viable career options.
 
Another way in which this dynamic reveals itself is in the career development of African Americans who are already in the workforce. Statistics have shown that, without a strategy for career development, African Americans are disproportionately left behind when it comes to a reasonable rate of growth in the workforce.

Biggest Goals

Our goal at Ebony Tree Council is to provide our young people with a glimpse into various career fields in the following ways:
  • Highlight the disparities and the opportunities in certain career fields
  • When possible, highlight African American professionals who are successful in those fields
  • Introduce a new perspective on potential careers
  • Provide resources to help develop healthy career development strategies

Organization Change Managers

Much like the name implies, a Change Manager is tasked with organizing, tracking, and suggesting the changes in which the implementation of the company’s structure is necessary for higher efficiency and profit. They are meant to make these processes as effective and efficient as possible.
