About BDPA

For 40 years, BDPA has enabled the upward mobility of African Americans and other minorities in the Information Technology (IT) and STEM fields. Through its 40+ local community chapters in major cities across the United States, BDPA has been at the forefront of promoting the minority agenda within the IT profession since 1975. BDPA has been a leader and pioneer in technology and STEM training for IT professionals and High School students since 1986. Our National High School Computer Competition (HSCC) program which is a hands-on training program, has introduced tens of thousands of high school students to coding and application development while also presenting opportunities for students to obtain college scholarships due to the generosity of our sponsors and partners. Because of BDPA’s focus on students and professional members alike, we continue to support and lead the upward success of our members "from the classroom to the boardroom".




To build a pipeline of diverse professionals and aspiring students in the STEM and digital technology fields through innovative professional and technical development programs and activities.




 To be the leading and most recognized organization in enabling digital leadership preparedness for aspiring diverse professionals.



  • That our purpose is to serve and elevate others 
  • That preparing students and young professionals today for leadership tomorrow is a necessity
  • That a talented and diverse group of people is the most creative and innovative workforce
