BDPA ( hosts ‘Cincinnati Blacks In Technology’ to collaborate with the vibrant community of like-minded technology professionals of color in our city. The doors are wide open for those folks who passionate about all things technical. Our meetups encourage fun, socializing and high level talks on a variety of technology topics. IT recruiters and IT job seekers ( are both welcome!

This month we want to help you create a better life. We’ll do this by exposing you to some tools and techniques that will put you in better control of everything that’s going on at work and at home. Many of us only focus on learning new skills, software, and habits for work. But, there’s an entire realm of ideas and tools available to make your personal life just as well-oiled as your professional one.

Our (virtual) guest speaker this month is Braxton Washington (, IT Manager for Global Business Services at Procter & Gamble. As much as he enjoys improving the P&G business, he’s more passionate about life improvement. He wants to share a few things that have made him more effective and calm in a world with so much going on. He says, “I spend lots of time creating systems that help me to focus. It allows me to forget and still stay on top of the most important things. I hope my experience will help others, too.”

BDPA is excited to have Braxton sharing key insights on how to make technology work for our members at this meetup. Anyone … regardless of race or color … interested in tech is welcome!
