About the Event/ Milestone
We had the incredible opportunity to attend Black Tech Week in Cincinnati, Ohio, and let me tell you, it was nothing short of amazing and insightful! The event brought together a diverse group of individuals, all passionate about technology and its potential to drive change and create opportunities for black communities. From the moment we stepped into the conference venue, we could feel the energy and excitement in the air. The atmosphere was buzzing with innovation, collaboration, and the shared desire to empower and uplift black entrepreneurs and professionals in the tech industry. One of the most remarkable aspects of Black Tech Week was the lineup of speakers. The entire Black Tech Week team did an outstanding job of curating a lineup that featured influential black leaders and entrepreneurs who shared their experiences, insights, and strategies for success. Each session was thought-provoking, inspiring, and left me with a renewed sense of purpose and determination. The BID team came and showed out we are so grateful for all of the support !!!!! At the end of the week our interns provided a slide deck of what they learned during BTW and I was just amazed with how much they learned from the sessions they attended! I ran in to some great people and just had an unforgettable time!
During the same week BID hosted the BID Summer Tech internship program. The BID Summer Tech Internship Program provided aspiring young talents with the opportunity to gain invaluable real-world experience and enhance their skills in the ever-evolving tech industry. The program aimed to bridge the gap between academia and industry by offering a comprehensive learning environment that combined hands-on projects, mentorship, and professional development.
One of the key highlights of the program was the incorporation of the Agile for Marketing Certification. Agile methodologies have become indispensable in the tech and marketing sectors, enabling organizations to respond swiftly to changing market demands and improve collaboration within teams. By empowering our interns with this certification, we equipped them with a sought-after skillset that will undoubtedly boost their future career prospects.
Throughout the program, our interns demonstrated outstanding dedication, creativity, and enthusiasm. They actively participated in various projects, ranging from web development and data analytics to digital marketing and social media campaigns. Their contributions significantly impacted our organization's productivity and allowed us to explore new avenues in our tech-driven initiatives.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our interns, mentors, and team members who made this program a resounding success. Their dedication and passion have been instrumental in shaping this enriching experience for everyone involved.
The BID Team!
