Career Communications Group (CCG) Publisher and CEO Tyrone Taborn received a $15,000 donation Wednesday for its Foundation for Educational Development Technology Awareness Program from AT&T Regional Director for External & Legislative Affairs LaTara Harris at CCG's Baltimore office.
"We applaud you, Tyrone... and the entire CCG team for your tireless efforts in raising the awareness of opportunities for women and people of color and beyond. You've been fighting this fight for many years and we are so grateful for your contributions. Keep pressing Tyrone! Your contributions are making a difference!," Ms. Harris said.
"Throughout our history, CCG has been active in giving back. And long before the now popular term "Social Entrepreneur" became fashionable, CCG was at the forefront of social entrepreneurship. We have since formalized our community giving through our foundation, FEDI," Taborn said.
The Foundation for Educational Development, Inc., a 501(c), was founded in 1993 to promote career opportunities in engineering, science, and technology to historically underrepresented groups in STEM fields through professional and career development, educational programs, awards programs, and career placement opportunities.
Every summer, CCG's US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine hosts Technology Awareness Program (TAP) Student Leadership Symposia. The three-day camps are designed to emphasize academic achievement, personal health and career development in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to high school students. They also provide a forum for students to learn from leading STEM professionals and college professors about topics such as cyber security, energy, and the Armed forces. Students also participate in college preparation sessions focused on goal setting, SAT preparation, and study skills.
A virtual spokesperson for black technology, BlackEngineer aspires to serve as leading news and information provider on the advancements in black technology with deep insights into black engineering, black entrepreneurs, black education, and historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). In fact, BlackEngineer is one of the very few to promote the achievements of black technology. The Black engineer of the year awards (BEYA) is one of our successful ventures to promote black technology, progress and achievements made in black technology, and the sentiments of the Black community in the US, the UK, Caribbean, and Africa.
Black technology entrepreneurs are increasingly providing the horsepower that drives the global economy. Over the last two decades, black entrepreneurs have created more jobs, and contributed much more to the economic expansion of the Black community as a whole, than any black pastor or politician. Black entrepreneurs are taking risks and building businesses that generate economic growth and increase prosperity in underserved areas, as more minority-owned and minority-focused businesses emerge, willing to serve the financial needs of Black entrepreneurs. US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine's annual list of Top Black Technology Entrepreneurs reflects the expanding scope of leading Black entrepreneurs in information technology, homeland security, and defense.
