Men of Color Leadership Symposium
Building future leaders
The Men of Color Leadership Symposium (MOCLS) educates, empowers, and engages FIU students to address the needs and issues that are specific to men of color in higher education and strive for excellence in personal, professional, and academic pursuits. We achieve this by providing our students the opportunity to connect with and learn from their peers, faculty, staff, alumni, and professionals who have navigated through these very issues, while also highlighting their success. The leadership symposium is a unique networking opportunity for participants to learn from each other by participating in panel discussions, working groups, workshops, and networking with professional men of color who are leaders in their respective fields.
The Men of Color Leadership Symposium seeks to:
- Address systemic, social structures that impede men of color from achieving high success in their educational and professional careers.
- Provide students with a greater sense of self and helping them to contextual their identity socially, academically, historically, and politically.
- Assist students in developing their personal leadership and professional plan of action.
- Connect students with professional leaders, who have navigated through these very issues, while also highlighting their success.
The Men of Color Leadership Symposium registration will open in 2024.
