The African American Men of Westchester, Inc. (AAMW) is happy to provide you with our first Social Responsibility Report. We are an all-volunteer, not-for-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization founded in 1987. Our organization is composed of African American males who have distinguished themselves in various professions and have made significant contributions to multiple civic and community based organizations.
Over 25% of today’s jobs did not exist twenty years ago. The nature of work has changed and this trend will continue. Emerging technologies, globalization, and the way we think about work will have a profound impact on the composition of our workforce and the skills our young people will need in order to achieve and sustain socio-economic parity. AAMW recognized these trends and in 2003, introduced The Business Skills Olympics, an annual high school competition in which high school student teams from throughout the county analyze graduate level business school cases and present their solutions to selected problems. AAMW is committed to developing and encouraging collaborative action to strengthen the economic, social, and educational foundation of our communities.
