Blacks at Microsoft Minority Student Day
Event Date: February 14, 2014
Blacks at Microsoft (BAM) is committed to the Microsoft mission of helping people realize their full potential. BAM works to align with the Microsoft Corporate Citizenship goals by continuing to build relationships with potential customers and future Microsoft employees.
One of BAM's key commitments is to continually reach out to the external communities and showcase Microsoft’s technology and people in order to help others reach their full potential. As part of this commitment, BAM hosts an annual Minority Student Day (BMSD), now in its 23rd year. The goal of the event is to provide area high school students from underrepresented ethnic backgrounds with information about the exciting tools, resources, and career opportunities available to them in high technology. Throughout the day, Microsoft employees guide students through hands-on technology labs and information sessions. Employees also serve as mentors, talking with students about the wide variety of career opportunities available to them in technology.
Our theme for 2014 is Closing the Opportunity Divide.
