Blacks in Technology conference

13 Oct: Best Buy hosts Blacks in Technology conference

Best Buy welcomed the inaugural Blacks in Technology conference, BITCON 2018, to its headquarters in Richfield, Minnesota, on Saturday.

It was a moment that Greg Greenlee, who founded the Blacks in Technology nonprofit 10 years ago, always dreamed about.

“I started this because the representation of black men and women was unbelievably low, and I wanted to give this community a platform to learn, connect and grow,” he said. “Tech companies often don’t know where to look for talent from this community, and we hope this movement helps open up doors and provide opportunities.”
