Become a Partner

The BDPA Corporate Sponsorship Program is designed to offer corporations an opportunity to partner with BDPA under a formal alliance that meets corporate goals and objectives for recruiting, employee development, and philanthropic endeavors. The program allows corporate sponsors to not only offer financial support but also participate in programs developed to enhance the technical education and professional development of people of color.

The conceptual and fundamental scope of the program is to:

  • Link BDPA strategic initiatives to the objectives of the corporation
  • Provide a forum to interact with other IT and HR industry leaders and professionals
  • Increase exposure opportunities to technically competent and diverse IT professionals and students
  • Enhance loyalty in the corporation amongst employees and customers
  • Supply corporations with National BDPA recognition
  • Provide means for corporations to support BDPA programs
  • Give the corporation an entry point in support of National BDPA (NBDPA), the local chapter programs and the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF).
