B.L.A.C.K and L.A.T.I.N.X


B.L.A.C.K. (Black Leaders Accessing Consciousness through Knowledge) was launched in 2017 as a DO IT! Grant funded program with the John D. O’Bryant African American Institute (JDOAAI). Northeastern students are expected to go out on co-op very early in their professional careers, but some students did not have the networks, background, or experience to develop key relationships with employers that could lead to a fruitful co-op or career opportunity. As it was originally designed the B.L.A.C.K. program is designed to provide students of the African Diaspora with the opportunity to interact with some of Boston’s most prominent Black professionals. After recognizing that many of our Latinx students were already participating in the program because of the multiple identities that they hold, we intentionally expanded the program in 2020 with L.A.T.I.N.X. (Latinx Accessing Their Intellect through Networking and Exchange).
