BALTIMORE, Md. - The editors of US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine have released the prestigious 50 Most Important Blacks in Technology list for 2005.
 
Honorees are chosen for this annual list based on their work in making technology part of global society. During the year that the list is publicized, its members are presented to young people as role models, and their accomplishments are upheld as examples of the important contributions made on a daily basis by the millions Blacks in high-tech jobs around the world.

The 50 Most Important exemplars will gather for a colloquium and awards dinner where increasing Black entrepreneurship, executive development, and educational readiness for the "Digital Economy" will be discussed. The event will be held on Friday, Feb. 18, 2005 in Baltimore, Md., as a high point of the 19th Annual Black Engineer of the Year Awards Conference - the nation's premier career development and employee recognition event for Blacks in engineering, science, and technology.

Black Technology

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 Entrepreneurs

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.
