The work of the 100 Black Men of Greater Washington, D.C. is significant and urgent. Our mission is one that is focused on setting long-lasting examples and effectively mentoring the leaders of tomorrow. The Covid-19 pandemic and growing racial tensions have only heightened the need for “The 100” to be a resource for their mentees, as well as for each other.
Given that difficult task, the brothers of The 100 find it very important to recharge and maintain their own well-being. In order to pour into their mentees, and each other, the brotherhood feels strongly about keeping their own cups full.
This year the 100 Black Men of Greater Washington D.C. kicked off a program they call the “Refill Our Cup” series. The chairman of the events committee and Executive Life and Leadership Coach at Prime Prospective, Cory Daise, is the creator of the series. He says, “The Refill Our Cup event series was designed to support our members and make sure we are operating at our best”.
The series takes a focus on mental health, physical well-being, and financial growth for the members within the chapter. “In order to make sure the organization is strong and impactful, we must make sure our members are the best they can be”, says Daise.
Beginning in June the chapter has had guests that specialize in clinical social work, organizational psychology, licensed therapists, life and leadership coaching, cardiology, clinical medicine, and nutrition.
The organization plans to keep the series going through the end of the year. Currently the series is only available for members of the organization, but there are plans to open it up to the general public.
