Bethune-Cookman University Teams Up With the League of Black Women

Bethune-CookmanSealBethune-Cookman University, the historically Black educational institution in Daytona Beach, Florida, is teaming up with the League of Black Women Global Leadership Research Institute to design research that seeks to address barriers to Black women’s leadership aspirations. Under the partnership, Bethune-Cookman University will become the research arm of the institute.

Sandra Finley, president of the League stated, “Black women cannot wait for the economic condition of the country or the world to improve before they start to plot their strategy to ascend the ladder and assume positions of power and influence. Black women are weary of waiting for earned opportunities that are promised but go unfulfilled. We want Black women to see themselves as being able to grasp these opportunities today, as in right now.”
