It takes a special type of company to publicly endorse an initiative for young, Black professionals but even more admirable when they continue to do the work to support their success, long term. For yet another year, AT&T Dream In Black is doing just that with their Rising Future Makers Showcase program and they’re currently looking for their next set of deserving superstars.
Over the past two years, this program has honored a distinguished group of students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) who are giving back to the culture and their communities and connecting them to greater possibility. 50 HBCU students have already participated from 14 institutions nationwide, check out some of the past Rising Future Makers here.
