Project 99 is diversifying leadership
We convene underrepresented students and professionals from around the world in immersive experiences that enable them to be the leaders of tomorrow.
There is a leadership gap. Though Black and Latinx people represent 30% of the United States, they only represent 3% of all senior leaders.
We host week-long immersive experiences abroad for young Black and Latinx leaders that enable them to be role models of color for both their home communities and the communities they visit abroad.
All while embarking in an experience of a lifetime that is supporting them in their path to senior leadership - and eventually bridging the leadership gap. Our next program is in the Dominican Republic and Haiti during June 2018.
Not a tourism experience. A change making one.
Learn about the world and yourself but have fun too.
What Will You Be Doing?
Entering A Life Long Community
As part of Project 99, you join a supportive network of other top Black and Latinx young leaders.
Our program fellows are the future CEOs, presidents and board members, we convene high potential individuals who have already made an incredible impact in their community - and are ready for the next step. In the process, creating a curated network that will last a lifetime. Post-program, our participants engage in a myriad of activities.
Gaining The Global Citizenship Needed To Lead
As part of our program, you will be trained with the global citizenship required to lead by interacting with local communities around the world.
We engage directly with the local community, where we collaborate with partner organizations and create a long-standing connection in the places we travel.
An Innovative Travel Experience
You will work together in co-creating solutions to achieve a more equitable and inclusive society particularly in regards to gender, class, and racial equity. We will also observe the needs for environmental equity, particularly regarding water, electricity, and other resources.
This is not a tourist experience; we believe the future of travel for the next generation involves interacting with diverse people and ideas, working together, and contributing one's unique talents.
Build a network of future leaders
