In the heart of Cincinnati, Ohio, a visionary embarked on a mission in 2018 that would soon impact the landscape for Black professionals across the United States. Michael Moore, an individual whose name has become synonymous with innovation, empowerment, and leadership within the African American community, founded the Black Achievers Network. This organization, under his stewardship, has burgeoned into a formidable force with aspirations to foster connections, education, and economic empowerment for black individuals nationwide.

Michael Moore’s story is not just one of success but of inspiration. Born with an innate curiosity and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, Moore taught himself how to write computer code at the tender age of 19. This self-taught programmer turned his hobby into a lucrative venture by starting his own web development business while still pursuing higher education. His company flourished into a million-dollar enterprise that provided employment to over ten individuals.

Holding a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati didn’t confine Moore to a single career path. His professional journey took him through various roles, from being an account manager for a Fortune 500 company managing multimillion-dollar units to steering project teams as an IT Project Manager at Fifth Third Bank. Yet, it was his entrepreneurial spirit and profound desire to uplift his community that led him to establish Black Achievers.

Today, Black Achievers has expanded its reach beyond Cincinnati with 12 chapters nationwide and boasts over 120,000 members. Their website serves as a hub for these members and potential members in different cities looking to join this ever-growing network. The organization’s goal is ambitious yet attainable – to be present in 48 cities and amass one million members within the next five years.

The essence of Black Achievers lies in its mission statement: “To connect, educate and economically empower the Black community.” This vision propels them towards creating a world where black people can achieve the American Dream – a sentiment deeply rooted in every initiative they undertake.

2024 marked significant achievements for both Moore and the Black Achievers Professional Network. They were honored with a $200,000 Neighborhood Builders Grant from Bank of America – recognition not just for their efforts but also for their potential impact on communities across America. Moreover, Michael Moore received The President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for contributing more than 4,000 hours of service in his lifetime—a testament to his dedication and hard work toward making significant strides in societal upliftment.

Moore’s literary contribution, “Achieve Your Dreams: The 9 Principles of African American Success,” echoes his life philosophy. Through this book, he aims to inspire individuals to realize their fullest potential by embracing principles rooted in African American heritage.

The network doesn’t limit itself to professional growth; it emphasizes creating meaningful change within communities through various initiatives aimed at education and economic empowerment—ensuring its members are well-equipped not only for personal success but also as catalysts for broader societal progress.

Black Achiever’s presence on social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Instagram (@blackachievers1), and Facebook further amplifies their message—connecting with younger generations and spreading their vision far and wide.

In conclusion (without explicitly stating so), Michael Moore’s journey from teaching himself coding at 19 to leading an impactful network dedicated to empowering Black professionals demonstrates what can be achieved with vision, determination, and unwavering commitment to one’s community. As Black Achievers continues on its path towards national expansion—with goals set high—the legacy that Michael is building stands as proof that when individuals lift each other up, they can overcome barriers and achieve greatness together.

Through educational initiatives, economic empowerment strategies, and fostering connections among Black professionals across various industries—Black Achieers under Michael Moore’s leadership—is not merely aspiring towards achieving dreams; it is laying down tangible paths for others to follow suit. In doing so they aren’t just dreaming about change; they’re implementing it—one city at a time.
