Blacks @ Microsoft Seeks Essays for Minority Student Day

Blacks @ Microsoft (BAM), a diversity advisory council within the Microsoft Corporation, hosts an annual Minority Student Day every February. The goal of the event, which was first held in 1992, is to provide area high school students from underrepresented ethnic backgrounds with information about the exciting tools, resources, and career opportunities available to them in information technology.

Throughout the day, Microsoft employees guide students through hands-on technology labs and information sessions. Employees also serve as mentors, talking with students about the wide variety of career opportunities available to them in technology.

BDPA student members are encouraged to provide an essay for this year's program!
