Creating equitable & innovative pathways to graduate-level education and career mobility
Leadership Brainery addressing inequitable access to master’s and doctoral degrees and workforce leadership opportunities for underrepresented talent, including people of color, individuals from a lower socioeconomic status, LGBTQ individuals, and other demographics who are systematically excluded from higher education. We work with prospective and current graduate students, academic institutions, employers, and committed community members to eliminate systemic barriers to education and create communities of hope, belonging, and action.
Why our work is important and urgent?
Jobs that require a master's degree or higher at entry-level are projected to be the fastest-growing segment of the workforce between 2014 and 2024. According to the Council of Graduate Schools, Black students still represent less than 6% of incoming master's and doctoral students at competitive universities. Many critical careers that influence systemic change, such as STEM and health care professionals, lawyers, and educators, require or prefer postgraduate degrees.
