In the heart of Cincinnati, Ohio, a revolutionary movement took form in 2018, spearheaded by an extraordinary individual whose life story is nothing short of inspirational. Michael Moore, a visionary with an unwavering commitment to community and empowerment, founded the Black Achievers Network. This organization, under his leadership, has transcended its initial boundaries to become a beacon of hope and progress for Black professionals across the United States.

Michael Moore’s journey is a testament to the power of determination and vision. Born into circumstances that might have deterred a lesser spirit, Michael defied odds from an early age. At just 19 years old, he embarked on a self-taught journey into the world of computer coding. What began as a hobby while pursuing college education blossomed into a lucrative web development business that not only showcased his technical acumen but also his entrepreneurial spirit. This venture swiftly grew into a million-dollar enterprise, providing employment to over ten individuals and setting the stage for what was to become an illustrious career.

With credentials that include a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati and significant roles in corporate America—including managing a $5 million business unit as an account manager and overseeing project teams as an IT Project Manager—Michael’s professional background is both diverse and impressive. Yet, it is his role as the CEO and founder of Black Achievers where his impact is most profoundly felt.

Black Achievers started with a noble mission: to connect, educate, and economically empower the Black community. Michael Moore envisioned it as more than just an organization; he saw it as a movement that could foster unity among Black professionals and create tangible opportunities for growth and success. His vision resonated widely, leading to exponential growth in membership—from 4,000 members in Cincinnati alone to nearly 30,000 nationwide—and expanding its reach to 12 chapters across different states by 2024.

The network’s ambitions are boundless; with goals to establish presence in 48 cities and reach one million members within five years, Black Achievers is on track to redefine what community means for African American professionals. It stands as both a platform and sanctuary for individuals seeking not only professional networking opportunities but also personal development resources.

A cornerstone of Michael’s philosophy is encapsulated in his authored work “Achieve Your Dreams: The 9 Principles of African American Success.” Through this publication, Michael extends his mentorship beyond the confines of direct interaction—inspiring readers across demographics to strive for their full potential against all odds.

Recognition of Michael’s dedication came through prestigious accolades such as The President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for contributing more than 4,000 hours of service—a commendation personally recognized by the President of the United States—and receiving a $200,000 Neighborhood Builders Grant from Bank of America in acknowledgment of Black Achievers Professional Network’s substantial impact on communities. Black Achievers is fortunate to have a number of Fortune 1000 Sponsors that support the vision.

The ethos driving Michael Moore and Black Achievers is succinctly captured in their mission statement: “to connect, educate and economically empower the black community.” Their vision ambitiously aims at creating “a world where black people can achieve the American Dream.” These aren’t mere words but reflect actionable plans that have seen tangible results under Michael’s stewardship.

Connecting with Black Achievers extends beyond physical meetings or events; it encompasses engaging with them through various online platforms including their website which serves as hub information about chapters nationwide; LinkedIn Instagram ,and Facebook which collectively facilitate not just communication within the network but also serve as channels for inspiring content relevant to their audience.

Michael Moore’s story underscores that leadership infused with passion can ignite change far beyond anticipated boundaries. As both innovator and inspirer-in-chief at Black Achievers Network, his work continues shaping futures—one member at a time—while challenging societal norms about what it means to be a successful black professional today. His legacy isn’t merely built on achievements or awards but rather on lives transformed. This is merely the beginning for such a great organization, led by a phenomenal leader.
