Black Board of Directors Project
The Black Board of Directors Project (BBODP) is currently accepting referrals for its 28th class. The BBODP was founded in Phoenix in 1984 as an advanced leadership program to fill the void of blacks and others on corporate, charitable, and public-policy-making boards and commissions at the local, state, and national levels and in other leadership positions.
Annually, the Project recruits a select number of highly talented and motivated individuals who have usually reached middle to senior levels of their careers. A few high-potential individuals in the formative years of their careers are selected.
Those selected are vigorously promoted by a variety of direct and indirect methods. Members profiles along with their pictures are published in a directory which is widely circulated to diverse publics, including corporate chief executive officers, high level government officials, the local and national press and charitable organizations.
