Mr. Ron Glover,
Vice President,
IBM Global Workforce Diversity
  "IBM is once again proud to sponsor Black Family Technology Awareness Week, in partnership with Career Communications Group, Inc. (CCG). IBM is set on a course to close the "Digital Divide" — the gap between those who have access to technology and those who do not. Many of the have-nots are from America’s multi-cultural community, and we want to change that. The important influence technology will have on our future makes it a vital topic. This campaign, which will occur during Black History Month, will bring the Digital Divide to the forefront of our nation’s agenda. I look forward to a banner year in 2004."

Career Communications Group
publishes US Black Engineer and Information Technology magazine and sponsors the Black Engineer of the Year Awards Conference, a 13-year gathering of some of America's brightest minds, from promising students to top industry professionals.
