Transform Westside Summit February 3, 2017
The featured presenter for our Feb. 3 Transform Westside Summit was Nancy Flake Johnson, President and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Atlanta.
The mission of the Urban League of Greater Atlanta is to enable and empower African Americans and others to achieve their highest human potential and secure economic self-reliance, parity, power and civil rights.
To accomplish its mission, the League focuses on six key tenets of economic empowerment:
- Education and Job Skills Training
- Employment, Careers and Entrepreneurship
- Housing and Community Development
- Financial Literacy and Wealth Creation
- Youth Empowerment
- Civic Engagement and Leadership
President Flake Johnson and her team shared information on the League’s work within each of the tenets above. To view the full presentation, click here.
