Become a Sponsor!
The International Center for Professional Development (ICPD) invites sponsorship for ICPD programs. Sponsorship allows organizations and individuals to rise above the rest and be seen as leaders in the professional development of ethnically diverse research scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and emerging industry leaders. Sponsors are also able to directly increase the diversity and reach of their organizations, as they have access to the top-quality participants in the programs, and sponsors often recruit employees from ICPD programs or partner with program participants.
The following presentations provide an overview of sponsorship opportunities for ICPD programs.
