The UNT Black Professional Network (BPN) serves employees that identify as Black or African American and focuses on three areas: 

  • Employee engagement and support
  • Student engagement and support
  • Alumni and community engagement

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups that foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. ERG’s are a critical piece of an organization’s diversity and inclusion strategy. The University of North Texas, through the Division of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access, supports the work of ERGs in the development, support and retention of employees.


The Black Professional Network meets on the last Thursday of every month at 11:30 a.m. Visit our Upcoming Events page to learn more about our next meeting. We hope you will join us!
