The Leadership Committee is composed of senior members within the recruiting community. The committee is tasked with providing overall direction for Black Belt Recruiter certification programs as well as developing and maintaining the Black Belt Recruiter Code of Ethics.
Originally, the Leadership Committee was given the categories of Black, Red, and Green Belt recruiters and asked to define each category. Brown Belt Recruiters are now admitted to membership as well. The Leadership Committee had set definitions for each level to include:
- Minimum experience required;
- Areas of study recommended for each level; and
- The amount of study recommended for each topic (area of study).
For example, the minimum experience required to earn a Green Belt is two years; five years for a Red Belt; and 10+ years for a Black Belt.
Another example of a program recommendation is that Green Belts should complete at least one Sourcing course from the available sourcing courses approved by the Curriculum Committee.
Once the Leadership Committee has laid out the training expectations for each level of designation, the Curriculum Committee evaluates and approves training courses that will allow belt candidates to meet Leadership Committee recommendations.
The Leadership Committee is composed of 3 members of which one is designated as the committee chair.
