Presenters Set for Black Executive Exchange Program at UNO

Omaha - The Urban League of Nebraska, Inc. and the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) have finalized the list of presenters who will take part in the Black Executive Exchange Program (BEEP) that begins Monday, Feb. 28.  The 43 presenters will speak at a variety of events and presentations on campus.

Developed by the National Urban League in 1969, BEEP addresses the need for quality education for African-American students interested in both the public and private sectors, and has been present on the campuses of historically black colleges and universities.  BEEP in Omaha has been unique and innovative.  UNO is the first predominantly white institution in the nation to participate in the BEEP program.  Presenters are called "BEEPers."

"All students will benefit from the BEEPers' presentations and discussions," said Amy Rodie, associate dean of the UNO College of Business Administration.  "Each day, the workplace becomes strengthened by additional diversity. The BEEP program gives real-world advice to students on how to succeed in a diverse workplace."
