Damarqio Williams          

Community Activist, Nationally Recognized Leader, Singer, Philanthropist, Minister & CEO/Founder of Next Dimension Network

Highly motivated and philanthropic, Damarqio (DK) Williams is a leading influencer, entrepreneur, and advocate for equality and inclusion. He leverages his passion by promoting strategic brand diversity and equity consultations, collaborating with respected brands, and advocating for equitable fatherhood policies to cultivate a more compassionate community for everyone.

Growing up, DK did not have a relationship with his biological father. This reality initially made him feel like he would fall victim to the adverse depiction that society has drawn up for those without fathers; jail or dead. But that was far from what happened. DK successfully graduated high school, became the first in his family to earn a college degree at just eighteen years old, and is now an iconic leader in driving positive change.

Today, DK is head of several organizations. He is founder of Detroit Father, promoting awareness of the Black fatherhood narrative, co-founder of Joining Forces with King, an initiative to develop a safe environment and motivate narrative change regarding Black men in Detroit, and founded Detroit Social Circle, a safe place that brings different communities and cultures together to drive transformational social impact.

DK has also served on the executive board for New Leaders Council in Detroit and is currently an active member of many organizations, including Detroit Young Professionals, Detroit Parent Network, Campaign for Black Male Achievement, Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), and National Black MBA Association. With his dedication and effectiveness in delivering powerful messages, DK was listed on the Advance Magazine’s "The Nice List" and again on Seen Magazine's "60+ Michigan Influencers to Follow". DK was most recently listed as Who’s Who in Black Detroit by Real Times Media.

Whether it is adding baby-changing stations to local, public men's restrooms or advocating for national fatherhood education programs and equitable policies, DK is always striving to foster equality and inclusion and takes every opportunity he can to influence others to be on the side of community improvement. From motivational speaking, business consulting, to being a brand influencer, DK made it a core mission to use his philanthropy work to build a promising future while simultaneously restoring the past systematic inequity.
