Black tech mid-level professionals advance
into senior leadership positions

Initiatives created to establish pathways for advancing Black technology professionals from mid-level management to senior-level leadership roles are included in the Advancement from Mid-Level to Senior-Level Tech Positions programs: Black Tech Talent Hiring and Succession Strategies Event, Customized Leadership Succession Training, and Gap Analysis for Succession Planning.



“This was one of the most powerful, purposeful leadership experiences I’ve had the privilege and honor to participate.   The discussions were meaningful, insightful and most of all impactful.   Finally, the exposure to industry leaders was a bonus that further enhanced the robust curriculum.”
