The V-Suite
Black Veteran Career
& Business Center


The Black Alliance of Colleges and Employers (BACE) is pleased to announce the expansion of our new alliance in support of career and entrepreneurship outcomes for active-duty, veterans and their families.

YWCA Metro Chicago

This nonprofit fiscal sponsorship between Black Alliance of Colleges and Employers (BACE) and YWCA Metropolitan Chicago aligns the pillars of Campus, Career and Research to level economic access and opportunity for Black talent in workspace and higher education with a focus on serving Black Veterans and Military Families. This aligns with YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

The Alliance is grateful for all of the generous donations from corporations, foundations and individuals that help sustain our mission of an inter-disciplinary forum advancing racial equity through leadership advocacy, organizational transformation, professional growth, education and data transparency and reporting. The Black Alliance of Colleges and Employers (BACE) is fully funded by these donations and without them, we could not serve our community alliance.

The PhD Project

Diversity isn’t a box to be checked on a business plan. It’s a requirement for an effective, competitive 21st century workforce. When the people at the front of the classroom look like the people sitting at the desk, when everyone knows that their unique abilities are recognized and valued, when everyone has an opportunity to succeed, our campuses are stronger, our companies are stronger, we are all stronger.

Creating a more diverse workforce demands the same spirit of innovation, entrepreneurialism and leadership that built our great companies. It’s why at The PhD Project, we’re building diversity by targeting the place where great leaders are created: America’s business schools. Through our work, these schools today have a more diverse faculty of inspired PhDs who serve as mentors and role models for a new generation of Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic American, and Native American business leaders.
