Mr. Jamal Bowen

My name is Jamal Bowen. I was born in Washington D.C. but, raised in Denver Colorado. I currently work as an educator. I have two boys named Da’Jonte and Nassir.  After receiving my Master’s Degree in Organizational Management with a specialization in Public Administration, I was inspired to start a non-profit organization called “Empowering Community Entrepreneurs.” In 2016. 

Visited Monrovia, Liberia and Abidjan, Cote d’lvoire (West Africa) in October-November 2017.

I served as an Observer/ Women’s Situation Women (WSR) 2017 Legislative and Presidential elections. Participated in the preparations for the Women’s Situation Room for the Liberian Presidential and Legislative elections effective Oct 2017 and its actual operationalization. Assisted Angie Brooks International Centre for Women’s Empowerment, Leadership Development International Peace and Security by reviewing its support to youth and design improved programme for maximum effectiveness. Assisted with preparation for the Release of the Educational Board Game at the African Development Bank (AFDB) and actual support of the Release in Abidjan, Cote d'lvoire and implications thereof.

Ph.D. Student at the University of the Rockies Denver, Colorado

I felt that is a good idea to keep the momentum going and pursue my Doctorate Degree in Organizational Development and Leadership (SoODL) with a specialization in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. This will give me the opportunity to move forward with whatever career I choose. The reason this degree is relevant, it gives me the opportunity to make decisions that will benefit others and myself. This course will provide me with the strategies and the tools I need to sharpen my skills to make me more marketable. I feel that I will gain more leadership skills and the chance to motivate other individuals as well.

Memory from BAAC- The ability to have a place at CSU, we could call home and feel comfortable to express ourselves. I remember a time, When I was in Ms. Bridgette office and she “told me about myself”. It was the most humbling experience and pushed me to be a better man.

Memory from Africans United. Being a model in the Fashion show for African Night.

Memory from the United Men of Color-  Being a part of the Executive board and a Brotherhood. I remember a time when we brought out influential speakers and even rapper Wale.
