The Information Technology Senior Management Forum (ITSMF), formed in 1996, began with a conversation between a few prominent technology executives who found that only 3% percent of Information Technology management roles were being held by African-Americans. Studies suggested that not enough African-Americans were positioned for senior-level Technology positions. This discussion sparked those executives to action as they were compelled to reach, teach and cultivate those aspiring African-American technology professionals. Under the leadership of Carl Williams the 501c(3) organization was founded in Chicago, Illinois and began the work of recruiting those African-Americans who ranked among the Who’s Who in technology; as well as those companies and individuals looking to support the mission of the organization. ITSMF, celebrating its 20th year, still remains the only national organization dedicated exclusively to cultivating executive talent among African-American IT professionals.
