Developing Professionals of Color: Going beyond the Traditional Leadership Skill Set
White, Belinda Johnson; Hollingsworth, Keith
Journal of Leadership Education, v4 n1 p90-103 Sum 2005
This article demonstrates how the Leadership and Professional Development course at Morehouse College, an all-male historically Black college in Atlanta, Georgia, goes beyond teaching traditional leadership and professional development skills and exposes students to the impact of being a "professional of color" in corporate America. This paper will explore the need for African Americans to have skills related to corporate success that go beyond those needed by Whites and the pedagogical techniques used to develop the additional skill sets in undergraduate students of color. Anecdotal and empirical evidence regarding the effectiveness of the course is provided.
