The first Global Leadership Forum Summit took place April 6 at World Wide Technology. The summit's mandate was "Educate To Action."
"If we don't reach children by the age of four, we have missed our opportunity to instill excellence," said Pamela McCauley, one of the three keynote speakers, a professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems at the University of Central Florida and director of its ergonomics laboratory. "We must engage children much earlier."
The Global Leadership Forum’s mission is “to unite and empower diverse talent to enable innovation and value creation,” and its vision is “to inspire and ignite untapped potential in the global community."
Launched in 2015, the Global Leadership Forum’s founding partner organizations were World Wide Technology, one of the world’s largest minority-owned tech businesses; information technology senior management forum, the only national organization dedicated exclusively to cultivating executive-level talent among black information technology professionals; black data processing associates; and career communications group's foundation for educational development, which promotes career opportunities in engineering, science and technology to historically underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
