During Black History Month on Tech4Boomers I like to call attention to what is happening with African Americans in the field of Technology.

This month, I am eager to share news about Blacks In Technology (BIT), which was founded by Greg Greenlee.  Greenlee has over 17 years of experience in Information Technology. BIT  focuses on what they refer to as Stomping the Divide“, providing resources, guidance and establishing standards, which are geared toward technical excellence for Black people in the technology industry. The organization was established in 2012.  In addition, BIT is expanding to include member organized chapters throughout the United States.  It is a formidable support organization available for your use.  If you would like to learn more about BIT and how your city can be involved click this link.
