Golden Baton Group

Cecil Wilson, Founder of The Golden Baton Group, formed the organization in efforts to provide an environment that fosters the flourishing of ideas, industries, businesses, and emerging leaders for people of color. TGBG is now one of the fastest growing mentor networks providing emerging leaders with multiple pathways to develop their business acumen while feeding their soul. The most important aspect of TGBG is the people. Individuals come from all walks of life and both the established leaders and emerging leaders are able to connect in small, intimate settings that allow meaningful connections to occur. These connections catapult Change Agents to the next level of success. In today’s world, renewing hope, responsibility to others, and shared communication are more important than ever.


With the support and contribution of their invaluable volunteers, members, civic leaders, community partners, and corporate sponsors, we strive to continue fulfilling our mission to enhance the lives of emerging leaders and their communities throughout the Chicagoland area.
