Bridging the network gap across North America.
The Black Professionals in Tech Network (BPTN) is bridging the network gap between Black talent and career opportunities across North America.
We’re here to help Black professionals network, connect with one another, share resources and grow their careers. Our rapidly growing network counts over 50,000 Black professionals.
We provide our members with access to mentorship, skill-building opportunities, and a strong peer network to support professional growth and advancement. We also host events such as our weekly Global Masterclass series, the annual Global BFUTR Tech Summit, and more.
BPTN also helps partners attract, hire, retain and promote Black tech and business talent through pipeline building and internal culture development.
We’re pushing the future of tech forward by creating a space for Black professionals in tech to gather, grow and evolve – all while being a conduit for companies to engage this talent.
