Global software company BMC has announced expansion plans for its current sponsorship of the BreakLine Technology Education program. BMC has been named a founding sponsor of BreakLine Apex to focus on helping veterans, women, and people of color establish careers in the tech industry.
According to a news release, BreakLine Apex is a new education-focused program that leads recruitment, coaching, and mentorship of talented people of color, with a special focus on Black and Latinx candidates being considered for various technical and business roles in top tech companies worldwide.
“BMC and BreakLine have successfully partnered together since 2017 to create pathways to opportunity for people from all backgrounds and experiences, and to increase diversity in tech,” said Bethany Coates, CEO of BreakLine, in a statement. “Over the course of our collaboration, BMC has hired many veterans from BreakLine, across a range of roles, from sales to communications, and they’ve already hired a BreakLine Apex participant just six days after the first Apex program kicked off!”
While many BreakLine candidates come from a veteran background, BMC is also focused on filling its hiring funnel with BreakLine Mavens — a program that provides education and coaching for women seeking more career development in tech.
“Today’s business landscape requires innovative and agile leaders. We are thrilled to be able to support the expanded BreakLine programming,” said Eric Olmo, Senior Vice President of People and Spaces at BMC, in a press statement. “As a trusted ally, BreakLine has continuously worked with BMC to bring diverse and outstanding talent into the organization. I’m thrilled with our team’s initiative to collaborate with BreakLine and honored that BMC can be a founding sponsor of this esteemed program.”
BMC’s extended sponsorship of BreakLine will allow it to lead sessions on topics such as organizational design, talent management, culture, and predicted future trends in the technology industry that will further propel candidates in their digital/tech career pursuits.
A press release reports that BMC’s next program with BreakLine’s three verticals — Apex, Mavens, and Veterans — will take place on Dec. 16, and feature Jason Andrew — Chief Revenue Officer at BMC — to share his insights and expertise on the tech industry.
In addition to its sponsorship, BMC employees will also be permitted to attend BreakLine’s exclusive fireside chats with prominent thought leaders from the tech industry, academia, and military.
“BreakLine is honored to continue to provide BMC with a new pipeline of outstanding talent who are ready and able to drive exponential value at the company,” said Coates.
