Black Progress


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

Our Black Progress Staffing division works with organizations on a collaborative basis to provide the recruitment and direct placement of minority candidates at the executive level.  Black Progress Staffing focuses explicitly on delivering immediate results to support the diversification of an organization's executive suite.  

Every large organization in America desperately needs our Executive Minority Staffing Program right now.  Today, every organization is addressing its racial bias issues, and despite their best efforts, they still don't have anything that effectively creates immediate impact like our Executive Minority Staffing Program. 

BPM authorizes various agents to represent BPM’s Executive Minority Staffing Program.  BPM Agents will receive their negotiated share of the program fee as stipulated in a negotiated agreement.

BPM also provides eligible staffing firms as well as trusted advisors [accounting, insurance, wealth management, financial advisors, and legal firms] with BPM Agent status and additional fee-sharing incentives as stipulated in a negotiated agreement.

BPM provides our authorized BPM Agents with a new revenue stream that can easily be built on their current client relationships.  Our BPM Agents have the opportunity to offer more value to their existing clients by providing them a highly valued recruiting and placement service that goes beyond their current business service offerings [that will benefit both their clients and themselves].  Our BPM Agents are responsible for cultivating opportunities through their existing network.  BPM Agents can further penetrate their network for any staffing needs – simply put, where companies have a need to hire new minority executives

Black Progress Staffing Program


Our Black Progress Matters Executive Minority Staffing Program has three core offerings provided for by our Black Progress Staffing division:  Our primary offering is an annually renewable Executive Minority Staffing Program for $250k per year, and we are currently offering an introductory Executive Minority Staffing Program which is a 6-month collaboration for $100k - a perfect way for an organization to get started with effectuating immediate change in the color of their executive suite.  In addition to our main collaboration program, we also offer an ongoing contingency-fee based recruitment program.

When an organization signs up for our BPM Executive Minority Staffing Program, here is what they will receive:


  1. BPM Mission
    BPM will promote the collaborative participation of an organization in the BPM Mission with all of the accompanying social good and public relations benefits.


  2. BPM International Presentation
    BPM will provide premium postings of the organization’s Executive Job Openings on our BPM Platform with accompanying Social Media exposure demonstrating the organization’s desire to effectuate immediate change in their executive suite. 

    We work collaboratively with the organization to define the position profile to target the search for the ideal executive to ensure that their offerings are appropriate to their mission.


  3. Black Executive Talent Pool
    BPM will provide the organization full access to BPMs Executive Black Talent Pool for executive-level openings.  BPM recruits qualified minority candidates to fulfill executive positions across a variety of industries and skillsets.  One of BPM’s key resources is this remarkable pool of executive minority talent that we continue to assemble.

    All of the candidates that Black Progress Staffing provide are fully vetted, interviewed, and prepared for the interview process ensuring both their qualifications and appropriate fit for the executive position to be filled. 

    BPM is available to help coordinate the interview process to streamline the evaluation and selection process.  If a BPM candidate is chosen, we are also available to assist in the negotiation to secure a successful outcome.


  4. Black Progress Staffing Contingency Fee Discount
    BPM will provide the organization a 40% discount on Black Progress Staffing’s 25% contingency fulfillment fee [reducing the Black Progress Staffing fee to 15% on all placements made during the duration of the collaboration program], as well as eliminating the $5k prepayment fee on each job opening.

    Additionally, if the organization allows it, one-third of the 15% fee [5%] is available to any of the organization’s employees if they recommend a candidate who is hired by the organization through Black Progress Staffing.  This is a tangible way to get an organization’s employees to promote the organization as a great place to work.

  5. Black Executive-Level Interns
    BPM will provide the organization full access to our BPM Executive Internship Program, providing an executive-level experience for candidates from historically black colleges and other minority resources.


  6. BPM Executive Staff Participation
    BPM will provide the organization full access to the BPM Executive Staff for internal messaging and public appearances, including video participation and production.

  7. BPM Design
    BPM will provide the organization full access to the BPM design team and all promotional materials necessary to promote the BPM Mission and the organization’s full participation.

  8. BPM Incubator Support & Access
    20% of the organization’s program fee automatically goes directly to fund BPM’s Minority-Business Incubation Program. 

    BPM will provide the organization with first access for investment to all BPM incubated businesses.


  9. Black Progress Resources
    BPM will provide the organization full access to our Black Progress Resources Representation Services along with a full waiver of the $10,000 initiation fee.


  10. Full guarantee for our Black Progress Staffing services. 
    BPM will provide the organization with a money-back guarantee.  If at any time the organization is not satisfied with their BPM collaboration, they can terminate the relationship without recourse and receive a full pro-rated refund on their $100k, $250k, or negotiated fee.


Black Progress Matters is currently sourcing Executive Minority Staffing candidates through our international network of staffing associations [e.g. iWorld Professionals, AP WNY, AP Rochester, AP Phoenix, c1 Advantage, Advantage Global Resources, and Capax Resource Management of London, England].


Black Progress Staffing is the first pillar of the Black Progress Matters mission.



Turnbo Malone


One of America's first and most prominent African-American businesswomen, Annie Turnbo Malone founded and developed Poro College, a commercial and educational business focused on cosmetics for black women. 

While experimenting with hair and different hair-care products, she developed and manufactured her own line of non-damaging hair straighteners, special oils, and hair-stimulant products for African-American women.  She named her new product “Wonderful Hair Grower.”  To promote her new product, Turnbo sold the Wonderful Hair Grower in bottles door-to-door.  Her products and sales began to revolutionize hair-care methods for all African Americans.

Poro College as an institution of learning was established as a way to teach people about black cosmetology.  Through the school and the business, Malone created jobs for 75,000 women around the world.  She's recorded as the first black female millionaire in the United States, with a reported $14 million in assets in 1920 ($167 million by today's standards).
