Milton J. Little, Jr.

Board Chair and Trustee
President, United Way of Greater Atlanta

Milton J. Little, Jr. was appointed as president of the United Way of Greater Atlanta after serving as president and CEO of United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley.  He has devoted many of his 20 years in the public and private sectors to creating workforce and educational programs, building national partnerships to fund housing, and developing corporate philanthropy and community involvement strategies.  Prior to joining the United Way system, Little served as interim president and CEO of the National Urban League in New York where he launched innovative partnerships with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Labor and Commerce Departments, as well as with corporations.

Little came to the League from Lucent Technologies, which he joined while it was still part of AT&T.  The philanthropic strategies he developed at Lucent and AT&T became the forerunners of many programs that today are reducing disparities in education, employment, income and health in communities nationwide.  Little graduated magna cum laude from Morehouse College with a B.A. in sociology.  

He earned an M.A. in urban sociology and social policy from Columbia University, and pursued additional post-graduate studies in public administration at New York University.
