Creating equitable pathways to

Equity.

Leadership Brainery works with academic institutions, prospective and current graduate students, employers, and committed community members to eliminate systemic barriers to master’s and doctoral degrees and workforce leadership opportunities for underrepresented talent -- including people of color, individuals from a lower socioeconomic status, and LGBTQ+ individuals.

We believe that with greater resources and access to inclusive networks and advanced education, underrepresented communities can leverage impactful and higher-wage careers to establish financial stability and reinvest in their communities to create generational prosperity.
