Traci Wade, Oracle Senior Diversity and Inclusion Consultant, gladly reported that, "Oracle is honored to have had a long standing relationship with BDPA to provide scholarships to deserving students focusing on degrees in Computer Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Our scholarships assist with providing the financial support to continue education for what we hope will be future employees and leaders at Oracle."
Founded in 1975, BDPA is the premier organization for African American professionals in the information technology industry. BDPA has 46 chapters across the United States and is the largest African American information technology association in the country. BDPA continues to fulfill its mission and work to bridge the digital divide by providing career growth opportunities for its members.
