Every year in February we call attention to Black History and Celebrate the causes and progress that have been made.

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.
