About the ABEEL Foundation:

The Alliance of Black Employee Experience and Leadership (ABEEL) Foundation stemmed from an employee-led group at the EllisDon Corporation in response to a lack of diversity in both professional organizations and the pathways available to youth on their way into the workforce. Now, as a volunteer-run independent foundation, the organization continues to raise awareness and promote education on how we can stop racism within professional organizations and the communities these organizations serve.

The foundation’s services provide connections to opportunities for youth in under-served and underrepresented BIPOC communities (with a particular focus on Black youth), and create a space for cross-cultural dialogues and education within communities, schools and partnering corporate organizations.

At ABEEL, we strongly believe that simultaneously empowering and educating present and future generations is instrumental in creating a society that is more diverse, equitable and inclusive.
