BUILD’s goal is to create a home at National Life Group for the ongoing leadership development of Black financial services agents as part of our commitment ​to positively impact the Black community.

At National Life Group, we are a mission-driven and purpose-filled business. Our mission extends well beyond the insurance and annuity policies that we offer. Our cause is a very simple one: Do good within our industry, in our communities, and with the individual families we serve. Out of that spirit, we are excited to sponsor BUILD, a National Life community committed to business equity and empowering the underserved and underrepresented.


Blacks Uplifted in Leadership Development, or BUILD, was chartered to commit to the increase of Black agents and leaders in our industry. According to Marsh, only 4% of independent agencies have an African American principal or senior manager. This lack of representation can interfere with our ability to effectively reach and create connections with a diverse and growing prospective audience.

Create access to leadership development for Black agents and communities

Provide community empowerment and business equity

Connect. Educate. Revolutionize.

BUILD is dedicated to:

  1. The professional and personal development of Black agents and agencies.
  2. Creating resources to educate and advance the African American community, through Black agents and non-Black agents, on the value of life insurance with living benefits.

We invite you to join us as catalysts of change. Working together we can impact local communities and create stronger leaders, develop deeper community connections, and build stronger financial foundations for everyone.
