2023 Black History Month Spotlights
Black History Month, which takes place in February each year, is meant to recognize and honor the contributions, achievements, and struggles of African-Americans throughout history. It opens up necessary conversations about the reality of American history, as well as the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion. This year, the Academy is collaborating with the Standing Panel on Social Equity in Governance to highlight public service leadership during Black History Month. Read our first spotlight below, and be sure to watch Management Matters throughout the month for the other spotlights.
