On behalf of BDPA and the Atlanta BDPA Chapter, our teams are glad to introduce you to a review of events recently shared during the 44th Annual BDPA National Conference! We were very excited to meet those from academia, government and industry who joined us in Atlanta, and look forward to our time together again next August in Atlanta during BDPACON23.

Since our last in-person national convening in 2019 and our last virtual conference in 2021, we have been working hard to develop a fun-filled, robust program that maximizes your time in Atlanta. Consistent with our 2022 theme, Honoring Our Legacy, Celebrating Our Pace, this year’s conference sought to magnify Black voices in tech, celebrate Black excellence in STEM, champion diversity at the corporate level, and provide opportunities to network and build community with Black leaders, students, and organizations from across the country.

During our time together, we offered a range of relevant topics, including sharing lessons of leadership, exploring techniques to succeed in technology, highlighting the important models of talent development, as well as Black entrepreneurship in tech, just to name a few.

Thank you for joining us in Atlanta and lending your voice to empower others. Together, we will continue to expand opportunities for Black tech professionals and students to raise their voices and harness their talents for positive change from the classroom to the boardroom. As we continue the journey toward our 50th anniversary in 2025, we look forward to seeing you next August!
