The Nine Nonprofit Leaders Work Together To Form The Black Executive Director Alliance of Detroit

Our Executive Director Nicole Wilson is one of nine black Executive Directors featured in this article.
The Black Executive Director Alliance of Detroit includes Tiffany Brown, founder and executive director of Developing Despite Distance; Reneé Fluker, founder and president of the Midnight Golf Program; Richard Grundy, co-founder and CEO of JOURNi; Anise Hayes, founder and executive director of Atlantic Impact; Kiesha Jackson, founder and executive director of Caleb’s Kids; Kim Johnson, founder, president, and CEO of Developing K.I.D.S.; Eric Miller, founder and president of The Lawn Academy; Courtney Smith, founder and CEO of Detroit Phoenix Center; and Nicole Wilson, executive director of The Yunion.
Each of the nine nonprofits represented are youth-serving organizations. As part of the Black Executive Director Alliance of Detroit, or BEDAD for short, each organization remains independent yet works with one another to ensure each other’s success.
