Over 30% of the US population is minority, but only 3% of our senior leaders are diverse. While broad investments at the K-12 level have expanded college access, MLT (www.ml4t.org) provides the coaching, hard & soft skills, and door-opening relationships that transform young professionals into high-impact future leaders. These ingredients are critical to realizing one's potential but historically have been delivered through informal channels to which minorities have limited access. MLT has delivered breakthrough results for its 4000 fellows (50% of whom are women) and has demonstrated it can fundamentally transform America's minority talent pipeline for the private and social sectors and develop 1000 leaders who catalyze change in our most vulnerable communities:
