why did we create this challenge?

Blacks and blacks occupy 47.4% of positions in the public sector, however, they remain absent in careers and senior management positions.


The largest demographic number in Brazil is black, with 54% of its population. We need to think about racial equity every day, discuss race and propose government solutions with this cut, it is the way to effectively combat inequalities and structural racism.

We created the Black Public Leadership Challenge to recognize initiatives that are generating opportunities in leadership positions for black professionals in the public sector. We want to:

- Recognize, promote and publicize the work of those who are promoting racial equity in the public sector

- Give visibility to the issue and accelerate the professional growth of blacks in the public sector

- Promote a culture of racial equity in public sector organizations


This is a partnership between Arapyaú , Humanize , Fundação Lemann and Repú .
