BDPA is Diverse IT.
Black Data Processing Associates (BDPA), Milwaukee Chapter, is committed to supporting the national initiative of ensuring diverse representation in the IT field.
Together we learn and grow! At the BDPA Milwaukee, each member is encouraged to "take the platform" and share their expertise with the other members and the African American technology community at large.
Develop career advancing leadership skills from people who care about your future. Maximize the career-boosting value of your BDPA membership by participating in volunteer opportunities that match your professional goals and strengthen your existing skills.
Involvement in the Professional Development, High School Coding Competition (HSCC), and Mentoring programs allows you to aid in the personal and professional development of African Americans while raising awareness of issues affecting technology professionals.
Each year, starting in January/February, the BDPA trains local high school students on the fundamentals of coding and life skills. In addition, the BDPA provides professional growth opportunities for college students and adult professionals through the local chapter's professional development and social networking. All participants are then invited to our national conference and the bi-weekly Career and Tech Talks hosted by the National BDPA.
