Hello You Can’t Fail Community!

We hope that you are all safe and healthy during this Covid -19 crisis. The You Can’t Fail leadership is taking this opportunity to pause and reflect on the growth, successes, and challenges that we have experienced over the last 10 years. We are incredibly proud of the work that we have done to deliver effective, impactful leadership development experiences for professional women of color in Central New York and thankful for the support of our community partners, sponsors and individuals that have contributed to our growth.As we envision the next decade, we are excited to announce the launch of a 6-month strategic planning effort that will guide our organization and the appointment of former Board president, Caeresa Richardson to coordinate this endeavor.The planning effort will begin with a formal evaluation of the You Can’t Fail Conference, our signature leadership learning environment for professional women of color, and the Millennial Women Making Moves Learning Community designed to advance and accelerate the leadership development and career paths of early and mid-career professional women.

The process will conclude with a vision for 2021 and beyond that builds on our successes, aligns with our mission and values and clearly articulates our aspirations to become the foremost authority on multicultural leadership development for emerging and established women leaders.

In the weeks to come, we will invite your participation through a variety of surveys and forums. Please be on the lookout for opportunities to engage with us!

Looking forward to the future,

The You Can’t Fail Board of Directors
