Confirmed Guests: October 27, 2015

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation is pleased to announce that Diversant chief executive officer Gene Waddy will be our guest on the October 27th episode of the BDPA iRadio Show.

Gene Waddy was a presenter at the 2015 BDPA Technology Conference. His presentation was thoughtful and it encouraged many BDPA members who were in attendance to prepare to succeed in their career choices.

Gene is a visionary entrepreneur and the owner of Diversant. Diversant is the nation's largest Black-owned IT staffing and solutions firm. The company has enjoyed dramatic growth, even during the economic downturn. The company does over $100 million in annual sales. We've asked Gene to share his thoughts on how minority youth can get involved with technology and how they can use it to advance their careers and lives. Gene is very active in a number of organizations, including his fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha. He was named a winner of the 2013 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in New Jersey. BDPA iRadio Show listeners will enjoy hearing the insights and observations of Mr. Waddy!

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation is happy to announce that Kyle Rivers will be our guest on the September 22nd episode of the BDPA iRadio Show.

Kyle Rivers is a volunteer instructor at Bloomfield College. He works on the computer science initiative at the college.  The weekly  computer camp program welcomes students from 24 New Jersey schools and provides instruction in areas such as web development, application development, and database design and development. Kyle trained the high school students who represented BDPA New Jersey in the national High School Computer Competition (HSCC) championship held at the 2015 National Technology Conference. The team came in 5th place winning a Dr. Jesse Bemley Scholarship for their high performance ... the second-highest ranking in the history of BDPA New Jersey chapter!

The relationship between BDPA New Jersey and Bloomfield College is unique. Our audience would love to hear more about this strategic alliance. We would also love to hear about Kyle's experience in the training as well as his actual experience in Washington DC during the week of the conference.
