Board Chair

Emir A. Hardy

As a serial social entrepreneur and in-kind philanthropist, I have dedicated my life to providing assistance to individual living in underserved communities. My personal mission is providing support to African-American career seekers, entrepreneurs and micro businesses interested in operating and creating career opportunities in emerging economies throughout Chicago's South Suburbs. I believe and accept being a part of the cosmic energy that powers all life. This admission bounds me to the laws of conscious choices and personal accountability.
