Mercer County Community College Launches Leadership Institute for Black Women

Mercer County Community College in New Jersey has partnered with the New Jersey Black Women’s Collective to launch the New Jersey Black Women’s Collective Leadership Institute.

The program was created to support emerging Black women leaders from any sector in gaining the skills and strategies needed for success and to develop a talent pipeline for Black women leaders in New Jersey. Over the course of the next three months, the program’s inaugural participants will engage in a speaker series, networking events, workshops, and panel discussions on topics relating to leadership, organizational culture, and personal development. The new initiative will also introduce participants to Black women executives and senior leaders from numerous fields, providing them with individualized mentoring opportunties.

“We are thrilled with the opportunity to help shape and grow the next generation of Black women leaders through the Leadership Institute,” said Tennille R. McCoy, co-founder of the New Jersey Black Women’s Collective and chair of the Leadership Institute. “Having the right skills is one of the keys to success, and that begins with having the support and guidance of those who have walked the path. We are fortunate to have assembled such a distinguished group of mentors and senior leaders to serve as guides on this journey.”
