TAB Training & Consulting, LLC - Celebrates Black History Month

TABTC, LLC celebrates Black History Month by acknowledging African American Women that ave used technology as a tool for building and developing their human capital toward reaching the very positions they currently hold and to achieve future professional goals.

“The Origin”

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history. 

 “The Theme”

Every year there is a theme identified with Black History Month and this year’s theme is “Black Women in American Culture and History.”   We are going to feature Black Women that have used technology (science, math and engineering) as a means for developing and building their human capital toward acquiring the prestigious positions that they currently hold.

“We acknowledge – Ursula Burns”

Ursula Burns, now Chairman & CEO of Xerox, holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Polytechnic Institute of New York and a Master's in Engineering from Columbia University.  She is the first African-American woman CEO to head a Fortune 500 company.  Mrs. Burns got her start at Xerox as a summer Intern.
