Silicon Valley tech company ServiceNow is investing in equitable opportunities for black communities and recently launched a $100 Million fund to do so. In an effort to push for more diversity and inclusion in the fields of technology and science for black students, they are hosting a virtual roundtable Courageous Conversations to bring together representatives from top HBCUs for S.T.E.A.M (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) to discuss career readiness for students of color and solutions for engaging more HBCU students in tech careers.
The discussion will feature 2x Grammy winner/actor Common, President Dr. Rosyln Artis of Benedict College, President Bobbie Knight of Miles College and top representatives from ServiceNow to discuss the relevance of HBCUs today, HBCUs building strong partnerships with companies, and the intersection of ServiceNow’s commitments to diversity, inclusion, and belonging. This is an amazing opportunity for HBCU students interested in S.T.E.A.M as they will get to hear directly from HBCU presidents who are focused in providing education and opportunities students interested in S.T.E.A.M, as well as seasoned professionals working in technology. Viewers will also be able to apply for open positions at ServiceNow via an ‘opt-in’ link after registration and during the conversation. Students can send their resume via the link so do not miss this chance to make yourself visible to leaders S.T.E.A.M! We want to see our HBCU grads leading the future of tech and science!
