Bilal produced innovative new media as managing editor of 247 Townhall (247townhall.org), a community forum dedicated to creating meaningful change by empowering individuals and communities.
Bilal is also the director of the film, "Towards Excellence," which explores diversity and equity at independent schools. The documentary looks closely at the problematic 80’s, when many private schools intentionally/experimentally increased admittance of African American students to meet self-imposed quotas. Through interviews with some of today’s top administrators, the film offers valuable insights for building vibrant and inclusive school communities. Bilal, who attended and taught at independent schools, unravels power and privilege, race, gender and space.
As the former Executive Director of the African American Art and Culture Complex, one of San Francisco's six cultural centers, Mohammed led a strategic shift toward creative place-making development, leading to a 21% increase in revenue. He also worked as the Design Strategist at Scansion Inc., examining the confluence of equity, art, and innovation.
Bilal is currently the Assistant Dean and Managing Director for Diversity and Inclusion at Stanford University.
