We are excited to be hosting international keynote speaker and President and CEO of PolicyLink Michael McAfee for an afternoon on 18 November – and you can attend his presentation for free!
Last time Michael was in Logan, he made a huge impact on delegates when he was keynote speaker at ChangeFest 2018. If you were there, you’ll know about the buzz he creates when he speaks!
PolicyLink is a US-based research and action institute focused on advancing racial and economic equity: just and fair inclusion for everyone living in America.
Michael has 20 years of experience as a leader who has partnered with organisations across the public, philanthropic, and private sectors to realise this vision.
Michael also conceptualised and leads the Corporate Racial Equity Advantage, the first comprehensive tool to guide private sector companies in assessing and actively promoting equity in every aspect of their business operations and strategy.
Before joining PolicyLink, Michael served as senior community planning and development representative in the Chicago Regional Office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Prior to his public service, Michael served as the director of community leadership for The Greater Kansas City Foundation and Affiliated Trusts. He was instrumental in positioning the organisation to raise $121 million from individual donors, an accomplishment that earned the foundation the honour of being recognised by the Chronicle of Philanthropy as receiving more contributions than any community foundation in America. Michael earned his doctorate of education in human and organisational learning from George Washington University and completed Harvard University’s Executive Program in Public Management. He is an avid off-road hiker and practitioner of yoga.
