      Opening ReMARCs


      What is true commitment? It extends beyond mere interest. It drives those who have it to relentless pursuit of a mission.

      Commitment is what I see from our team at the National Urban League every day. A commitment to excellence, results and service. So, I am always encouraged when we are able to make top-level appointments in our organization from within our existing base of committed talent. 

      As such, the Urban Empowerment Fund (UEF) Board selected Donald Bowen, the National Urban League’s Chief Program Officer since 2006, as President and CEO of the UEF – our new Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and small business loan fund. Previously, Don served as the President and CEO of the Urban League of Broward County from 1991 to 2006 and helped build the affiliate into one of the strongest and most impactful Urban League organizations in the country. For more information, click here.
      I have also named Cy Richardson and Hal Smith – Don’s former two “right-hands” – as the new co-leaders of our expanded Programs Department. Cy, formerly Vice President for Housing and Community Development, is Senior Vice President, Economics and Housing Programs. Hal, formerly Vice President for Health & Quality of Life, is Senior Vice President, Education, Youth Development and Health Programs. For more information, click here.

      I would like to recognize these individuals and our full staff for their accomplishments and continuing commitment of service to us, so that we can remain committed to serving millions more.
      Note: Last week, I shared Part 1 of my conversation on diversity & inclusion with David Cohen, Executive Vice President of Comcast Corporation, for NBCUniversal's Media Insider. Click here for Part 2, as we discuss why diversity is important to business and to the NBCUniversal networks specifically.

      Class of 2013: Summon the Courage, Choose to Serve and Live with Compassion

      University commencement season is a time of high hopes and great celebration. I was again reminded of that this past Saturday when I delivered the commencement address at Huston-Tillotson (HT) University in Austin, Texas. This coming weekend, I will also speak during graduation ceremonies at Tuskegee University and Alcorn State.

      Perhaps best known as the university where Jackie Robinson served as athletic director and basketball coach before he set out to break the color barrier in baseball, Huston-Tillotson is the oldest Historically Black College and University (HBCU) west of the Mississippi. For 137 years, it has opened doors of educational opportunity that might have otherwise been closed to many African American students. The enthusiasm and optimism I saw in the faces of this year’s HT graduates – and that I expect to see at Tuskegee and Alcorn – reaffirmed my belief that the future is indeed in good hands.

      Urban League in New York's Times Square


      As you may have seen on our social networks, the National Urban League recently was showcased as one of the national non-profits on Bank of America’s electronic billboard in Times Square. Bank of America is using the billboard to celebrate their connections with important national partners and the communities they jointly serve.

      The billboard generated 1.4 million impressions daily based on the tourist and commuter foot traffic, and encouraged passers-by to visit the National Urban League website and follow us on their social networks.
