Hands-on experience and access to mentors – there’s just no substitute.
That’s why Daugherty is involved with BDPA, a nonprofit organization that brings talented African Americans and other people of color together in the information technology and computer science fields for professional development and academic enrichment.
Our involvement with BDPA continues to mature:
Daugherty partners with the Professional Chapter of BDPA to prepare local high school students both technically and professionally to compete on a national level at the annual BDPA Conference.
In memory of one of our earliest and most beloved employees, Wanda Everett, Daugherty gives two $2,500 scholarships each year. We understand that preparing young professionals requires multiple touchpoints through their college journey, which is why we have also developed a mentoring program for all Wanda Everett Scholarship applicants.
Partnering extends beyond the great benefits of Growth & Development and Scholarships & Mentoring:
• Helping our talented African American students with job placement
• Exploring opportunities for new Daugherty clients through our partnership with BDPA
