Dear BDPA Conference Attendee:

On behalf of BDPA and the Atlanta BDPA Chapter, we are glad to introduce you to all that is in store for the 44th Annual BDPA National Conference! We are excited that you will join us in Atlanta, and we look forward to our time together in August.

Please view the conference itinerary here:

Since our last in-person national convening in 2019 and our last virtual conference in 2021, we have been working hard to develop a fun-filled, robust program that will maximize your time in Atlanta. Consistent with the 2022 theme, Honoring Our Legacy, Celebrating Our Pace, this year’s conference will magnify Black voices in tech, celebrate Black excellence in STEM, champion diversity at the corporate level, and provide opportunities to network and build community with Black leaders, students, and organizations from across the country. During our time together, we will delve into a range of topics, including sharing lessons of leadership, exploring techniques to succeed in technology, highlighting the important models of talent development, as well as Black entrepreneurship in tech, to name a few.

Thank you for joining us in Atlanta and lending your voice to empower others. Together, we are expanding opportunities for Black tech professionals and students to raise their voices and harness their talents for positive change from the classroom to the boardroom.

We look forward to seeing you in August!
