Management Leadership for Tomorrow Achieves Candid’s Platinum Seal of Transparency


Washington, D.C. (November 29, 2023) — Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT) is proud to announce that it has achieved a Candid Platinum Seal of Transparency for 2023. Candid, formerly known as GuideStar, is one of the premier nonprofit ranking websites used by individual and institutional donors as well as philanthropists to identify organizations aligned with their giving interests that are moving the needle in their area of impact.

The Platinum Seal is the highest possible rating attainable by a nonprofit organization and is representative of MLT’s commitment to our mission, impact, and financial health. This year, only 11% of U.S. based nonprofits have been recognized with the Platinum Seal. This recognition comes on the heels of MLT being named a Four-Star Charity by Charity Navigator, further showcasing MLT’s adherence to best practices and industry standards in all aspects of business and operations. The Platinum Seal of Transparency on Candid is yet another testament to the organization’s commitment to advancing racial equity.

“This seal will serve as a valuable asset for us as it indicates the strength of MLT, and those looking to contribute to the advancement of racial equity can do so confidently,” says Ana Marte, MLT’s Advancement Officer of Corporate Philanthropy. 

MLT encourages individuals and prospective donors to join in on its mission to advance racial equity and social justice. By elevating the career and economic trajectory of People of Color and changing employer practices, we aim to improve outcomes for all.
