A Philanthropy New York Collaborative Program presented with the Black Male Donor Collaborative (BMDC).
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: All interested funders. 


Collaboration and innovation must be key ingredients in an effective equity change agenda focused on closing the achievement gap among Black male students. In this research briefing, members of the BMDC, who work in partnership with leading researchers in urban education Drs. Pedro Noguera and Ronald Mincy, will discuss research-driven policy recommendations dedicated to closing this academic achievement gap. Through a dynamic, robust, and informed panel of stakeholders from philanthropy, academia, the corporate sector, and practitioners, attendees will gain the insight and energy needed to coordinate and make effective grants, leverage resources, and influence a change agenda to eliminate the academic inequities among Black males.
The BMDC seeks to improve the academic achievement of Black males through strategic philanthropy aimed at transforming the academic trajectory and educational resources for Black males in New York City.  The goal is to close the academic achievement gap and raise the academic performance, graduation rates, and college and employment readiness of Black males.
