Black Progress Matters

Mission Statement


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


Black Progress Matters truly believes that in any organization, if you look to the top at the executive level and see a person of color, it will inspire everyone of color in that organization.  It speaks volumes about the character and true opportunity available in that organization - and this is what Black Progress Matters is dedicated to providing. 

– Dean Haynesworth, BPM CEO


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 executive-level internships for minority students, 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.
