“I’m grateful to have been honored with the Black Achievers in Industry Award by a vibrant staple in our community, the Harlem YMCA. The work of Con Edison and so many others to create a clean energy future comes at a critical time. And Columbia University’s leadership in the development of knowledge-based solutions for climate and sustainability inspires me every day. Together, we can make the world a better place,” says Hoyte. 

The BAI program encourages youth leadership by highlighting the achievements of corporate leaders, providing youth mentorship and awarding scholarships to students.
