UNITE OUR CITY
Meet the Founders as they share the Vision
OUR MISSION- Create a safe space for men of color, professional or entrepreneur, to gather. We focus on growing our members professionally and personally through a strong culture of collaboration, mentoring, and accountability. We are here to provide commUNITY because we know how hard it can be to grow in isolation.
OUR VISION- Have the diversity in our community reflected in all industries and all levels of leadership across our community.
Unite 502 is a commUNITY for men of color in the Louisville, KY area.
As you move up in your profession, be it corporate, civic, nonprofit, or academic, you'll find the spaces you occupy become less and less diverse, especially for men of color. It can be difficult to find someone who can relate to your experience or help you navigate those spaces.
That's where Unite 502 comes in. We provide our members with a community of like-minded professionals who can relate to your experience as well as provide you with guidance on how to navigate those spaces. We are a mix of community leaders, entrepreneurs, and business leaders who share our expertise in leadership, wealth creation, maintaining your mental and physical health, as well keeping a healthy marriage and family life.
So whether you're new to the Louisville area or born and raised here, come join us in Uniting Our City!
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences. Lifetime Friendships.
Connect through Education
With this initiative, our goal is to show Representation in all its forms. We host events where our members have the opportunity to hear from top leaders in enterprise and entrepreneurs from inside and outside of our community.
Connect through Volunteerism
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we look for ways to uplift our community. Community services and outreach is something that we hold in high regard, and our team is always working on opportunities to create impact. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you think you have an opportunity we can support or if you would like to collaborate on a volunteer opportunity.
Connect through our Social Outings
We think an important part of any organization is creating opportunities for our members to connect through informal events. This is also an opportunity for potential members to connect with our members. Follow us on social media for the dates and times of our next outing.
Want to support our nonprofit, Workforce Ready 502, but not sure where to start? We could use your support to cover the cost of our summer mentoring program. Our mentoring program runs for 5 weeks, preparing young men of color for the workforce. Get in touch with us today for more information.
I believe Unite 502 has been a great benefit with learning how to network effectively. Through Unite 502 I've learned more about myself, my goals, and how to effectively create connections that facilitate reaching those goals. I believe Unite 502 will continue to be a great benefit for the Greater Louisville area's men of color, by providing a safe space for self investment, fellowship, mentoring, career advancement and community building.
