MENTOR A HIGHLY TALENTED BLACK PROFESSIONAL
CHOSEN FROM HUNDREDS OF CANDIDATES

Data is clear about diverse teams, they are more innovative and have greater financial success. Simply put, the companies that have diverse teams are more financially sustainable in the long term! 

Although Black tech professionals are just as educated and capable as their counterparts from other communities, they are still under represented in the tech ecosystem. This is a missed opportunity for Toronto. We must unlock this under-utilized resource to help scale our tech ecosystem.

As a result, BPTN has launched this mentor initiative that allows YOU to pay your success forward by mentoring highly talented Black professionals in tech. In your career, someone sponsored you, took a shine to you and helped you navigate your career. Let’s be intentional, help make this opportunity available for others.

Are you a tech or business leader? Are you at Director’s level or higher? We need you! 

You do not have to be a Black tech leader to be a career mentor, you simply need to have the time, interest and ability to lean into this opportunity.
