WHO WE ARE
The Black Doctoral Network is a 501c3 organization and a juggernaut of multidisciplinary intellectual capital.
We serve as a clearinghouse for Black and Latino scholars and professionals in the Social Sciences, STEM, and Humanities.
We serve as a conduit between talented scholars, researchers, and practitioners, and institutions that are serious about diversity and inclusion.
WHY WE ARE
We continually challenge the persistent negative stereotypes of black achievement, to answer the call for diversity in university and professional organizations, while bridging the gap between academic theory and the real world.
BDN's goal is to encourage deep connections that are currently hindered by academic isolation and fragmentation of intellectual resources.
We supply programming and analysis by highly skilled researchers to assist universities, think tanks, corporations, and non-profits with their most challenging problems.
