Dr. Abdul-Malik Muhammad on Affecting Positive Change

How do we bring about positive change in others? In organizations, communities … in ourselves?

These are the questions that Dr. Abdul-Malik Muhammad and his team at Akoben seek to answer.

Dr. Muhammad, our guest on this episode of Elevate with Robert Glazer, is the founder of Akoben, an inspiring organization that provides trainings, consulting and keynotes with the goal of transforming individuals, organizations and communities and positively affecting change.

Dr. Muhammad has served as a teacher, Principal, Campus President, and Executive and State Director of a multitude of national and international organizations, and has been a grassroots organizer, activist and advocate for marginalized youth for nearly 25 years.

In addition to his work with Akoben, Dr. Muhammad currently serves as the Vice President of several educational, mental health, and human services operations across multiple states.
