National Society Of Black Engineers – Central Kentucky Professional Chapter








2013-2014 NSBE Partnership Guide

We invite you to partner with us to positively impact our global engineering communities by focusing on advancing the underrepresented ethnic minority, in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.).

Founded in 1975, the National Society of Black Engineers is the world’s premier organization supporting black engineers. NSBE is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is run by a National Executive Board consisting of students pursuing degrees in the S.T.E.M. fields at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and is supported through central operations by our full time professional staff of 25 based at our World Headquarters facility in Alexandria, Virginia.

Our mission, “To increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community,” is now embraced by the nearly 30,000, and growing, number of active members of all racial backgrounds. This growth has been facilitated by the offerings in leadership training, professional and scholastic development, mentoring opportunities, community service programs and scholarship opportunities that NSBE provides.

Through a partnership with NSBE, your organization will gain great opportunities to maximize your visibility, recruit top diverse talent, and support events that both encourage and support men and women of color in their pursuit of careers in the S.T.E.M. fields. We are your one-stop shop.

NSBE annually hosts 12 regional conferences including six focused on leadership training, a national leadership training institute, an international conference, a bi-annual aerospace conference and an annual convention which, to-date, draws nearly 10,000 attendees. This fact, along with the overall growth of NSBE, has been facilitated by the participation in and support of our events provided by various companies, foundations, government agencies, and academic institutions.

Approximately 300 exhibitors and sponsors participate in NSBE events every year. These events have benefited our partners and supporters by providing great access for recruitment of top engineering student and technical professional talent as well as providing a forum to showcase their products, technology, and professional development opportunities.

We encourage you to review and discover the great sponsorship opportunities that can benefit your company as well as support our charitable mission.
