What companies are NOT a good fit for the BTP job board?

Black Tech Pipeline partners with companies who truly practice safety, diversity, equity and inclusion internally and externally. We promote companies and organizations who are taking actionable steps to support their team members from marginalized communities in visible and impactful ways. Your company is not a good fit if:

  • If your company builds and profits (in any way) off of harmful technology or products targeting marginalized groups.
  • If your company does not have conversations, policies or practices around diversity, equity and inclusion, especially when it comes to marginalized/underrepresented employees and talent.
  • If your company has been in the media for harming underrepresented groups in the workplace and significant internal change has not been made since to repair the damages made.
  • If your company has not made an effort to/nor intends to make an effort to retain, support and promote your current marginalized/underrepresented employees internally, especially Black and Brown.
  • If your companies DEI initiatives are performative. *ie: posts on social media, talks about DEI for show but has no data or feedback supporting their claims to having good internal practices

Can I apply to opportunities if I’m not Black?

Of course! Our job board is public and open to all.

Black Tech Pipeline centers Black technologists, which means that we prioritize our community members. Our partnerships are centered around providing Black technologists and professionals open opportunities, but are not exclusionary to anyone else. 

Our #1 rule is that anyone utilizing our platform, either as an opportunity giver or seeker, does not discriminate, exclude, harm or support harm against any marginalized group of people in any way, shape or form.
