Blog Talk Radio Live! July 28th at the National BDPA Conference

Mark your calendars!

On Wednesday, July 28th at 12:30 Eastern, during the 32nd Annual National BDPA Conference BlogTalkRadio Host, Jacqueline Lawson and co-host Milt Haynes, National BDPA, will bring you Blog Talk Radio Live!

African Americans sometimes underestimate the impact of technology on shaping the course of history. The show’s segments will include short interviews of senior BDPA officials to discuss their vision and dream for the organization. Internet Radio brings an added technology feature to the conference. It is a format that allows for real-time dialogue over the phone and in chat rooms anyone can access on the Internet. These Internet Radio interviews will provide multiple perspectives that are sure to appeal to anyone interested in the future of African Americans in IT.

Poignant, technical, moving. The interviews with the Board and Executive Committee members of BDPA will set the tone for the history, goals and mission of BDPA. An interview of the Founder will set the stage for the direction of the show by giving a perspective of the organization then and now.

Internet Radio Program Agenda

1. Historical BDPA – Advancing careers for 35 years

2. Transforming While Performing…As We Take BDPA To The Next Level

Kimberly Davis, President of JPMorgan Chase Foundation

Fast Company recently touted JPMorgan Chase Foundation president Kimberly Davis as one of this year's 'Most Creative People' as they wrote:

When Kimberly Davis flew from New York to San Diego to announce the $1 million recipient of JPMorgan Chase's crowdsourced philanthropy competition, the winners waiting for her on the other end weren't expecting much -- a buttoned-up figurehead, maybe, who would breeze in for 20 minutes, shaking hands and kissing babies for the cameras. "But she showed up at 6 a.m. and talked to every single volunteer about what they did at the organization," says Laren Poole, cofounder of Invisible Children. "It was so clear that she's the heartbeat behind the whole thing. She got it in a way that I didn't expect."

There are many JPMC employees in BDPA. I hope that many of them find a way to support BDPA Education and Technology Foundation in the weeks and months to come.
