Black Progress Matters Mission Statement

Black Progress Matters’s core mission is to change the face of leadership in organizations worldwide through its various executive minority staffing activities.

 

BPM is built on the premise that if BPM can secure the opportunity to fill an executive opening for an organization with the best candidate [who is a person of color], BPM will begin to change the color of the executive suite while enhancing the aspiration of everyone of color within the organization.

 

BPM also provides for executive-level internships for students from historically black colleges and other minority sources, minority business representation, and an ambitious incubator program for the development and funding of minority-owned start-ups.  Developing successful Black ownership is an essential component of BPM’s core mission to change the color of the executive suite and ownership of organizations worldwide.

George

Washington Carver

INVENTOR

George was born a slave in Missouri between 1860 and 1865 during the Civil War.   He would later devise over 300 different uses for peanuts, including cooking oil, printer’s ink, and axle grease.
 

George earned his Bachelor's degree in Agricultural Science from Iowa State in 1894 which he followed up with a master's in 1896.   He received the 1923 Spingarn Medal and was posthumously inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame.
 

By the time of his death on January 5, 1943, Carver was a world-renowned figure.  Much of his fame was based upon myth, but his real contributions were significant.  Sponsored by the YMCA, he lectured at white colleges, challenging many of the students' beliefs in segregation and the inferiority of African Americans and establishing close friendships with many of them.  His fame also encouraged black students to pursue careers in science.  His work improved the lives of hundreds of black Alabamians and was instrumental in pioneering ecologically sound and sustainable technology.
