Have You Checked Out 'Blacks In Technology' Website or Newsletter?

Advancing the careers of African Americans in the information technology industry from the classroom to the boardroom is something that we need to work 24/7/365.   BDPA has been delivering in this area for over 35 years, however, there are other players in the field.   I invite BETF-Blog readers to check out the newsletter:

This new group wants to accomplish three specific things:
  1. Deliver the most relevant and beneficial information and network for African American’s in the technology field or pursuing a career in technology.
  2. Focus on creating a community in which African American’s are comfortable, motivated and inspired to pursue careers in technology.
  3. Establish effective communicaton between African American’s in order to help drive individual growth, development and long-term success.
I would love to hear from any of the brothers or sisters that are working behind the scenes on this newsletter and the organization. I would also be interested to see how BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) could support this effort.

All of us can learn more from their website.

At the end of the day I'm in favor of anyone who has a passion for people of African descent that seek to advance themselves in the information technology industryWhat are your thoughts about this new organization -- Blacks In Technology?

Anon - My hope is that the two brothers who created BIT will adopt BETF as their official charitable organization of choice and support / promote us to their members as a way to give back financially to support Black students (scholarships and SITES program) and IT professionals (BDPA IT Institute and such).

Time will tell if such a strategic alliance is created. If you can help ... please do so!
