The BCU will expand the overall population of head racial and ethnic minority coaches by working with colleges, universities, search firms, private clubs and conferences to promote, identify and hire racial and ethnic minority coaches for top leadership positions, at all levels of coaching.
The BCU members will use their platform to strengthen ties to their communities. Annual programs will facilitate stronger connections with community leaders, citizens, and law enforcement that break down barriers and foster better teamwork.
The BCU will create a mentorship program, pairing more experienced members with younger and less experienced emerging leaders.
The BCU will hold quarterly webinars for our members with experts and leaders across a diverse range of industries, including private enterprises, medical professionals, and leaders across the sports world, law enforcement, education, and beyond.
The BCU will review National Collegiate Athletic Association practices and policies that have a disproportionately negative impact on women and all people of color. We will also organize and empower our athletes to use their collective voices to express their concerns and drive change.
The BCU will use its collective platform to speak out when we recognize social inequality and systemic racism in voting, education, and employment opportunities in America.
