black-ish: A celebration of culture, 2017 awards gala

BRIDGE Fort Worth: engage,empower,excel

Vision: To become THE central organization for black professionals in Tarrant County

Mission: BRIDGE is organized exclusively for charitable, professional, and educational purposes. BRIDGE is committed to fostering relationships with its members, employers, and other special interest groups to promote increased community participation

BRIDGE is a black young professionals group designed for networking and cross-networking. BRIDGE was developed by 8 emerging young professionals to fulfill the void of having no centralized organization for black young professionals in Tarrant County. It was created to be a bridge into our community to ensure that our presence was felt and voices heard. Our main focus areas are community involvement, education, and professional development. We are here to ensure the question, "where are the young black leaders in Tarrant County?" is never asked again. We want to provide meaningful and useful connections to our members, and bridge the gaps in leadership.
