Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) President and CEO Krystal Brumfield has joined the inaugural class of Google Next Gen (NG) Policy Leaders at a Summit being held at Google offices in New York this week.
According to Google, NG Leaders are “a carefully selected group of leaders in civil rights and racial justice, policy and advocacy, entrepreneurship and media.”
Google’s NG Leaders “represent cutting-edge and innovative thinking in (their) respective fields,” says Chanelle Hardy, head of Google’s Strategic Outreach and Public Policy program. The group can “help Google to be stronger community partners, as well as to ensure that we continue to effectively advance our mission: to organize the world’s information and make it useful for everyone.”
With a vision to ensure a level playing field and maximum participation in the airport industry for minority individuals, businesses and communities of color, AMAC’s Brumfield is ideally positioned to assist Google with their mission.
“I am proud to have been selected to be a part of this distinguished group,” Brumfield says. “I congratulate Google for their forward thinking commitment to support organizations like AMAC and help strengthen the development of social justice movements.”
Brumfield, along with the other NG Leaders, will be asked to engage as a partner with Google in 2017 by “joining a Working Group which will provide a shared space for advancing initiatives around informing and engaging communities of color around Tech and Telecom Policy issues,” says Hardy.
AMAC has two primary goals: to eliminate the barriers to minority and women participation in the airport industry and to capitalize on the opportunities available in this multi-billion dollar industry. Since its inception, AMAC has been at the forefront of nearly every national policy initiative impacting the participation of disadvantaged businesses in airport contracting. AMAC works consistently with Congress, the Federal Government, aviation trade associations, and others as a resource for information, education, and guidance on business and employment matters.
