- The founder and president of Though Leadership & Innovation Foundation (TLI), Bill Oldham, has created an opportunity for African-Americans to excel in cyber security
- His work is focused on ensuring that the African-Americans have access to mouth-watering jobs
- According to him, high-paying jobs are accessible to only about 3% of the African-American population
Bill Oldham, the founder and president of the Thought Leadership & Innovation Foundation (TLI), is determined to ensure that African-Americans can now have access to lucrative job offers in the cyber security industry.
Oldham wishes to close the gap between students and post-college by bringing cyber-security courses closer to those training at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
The aim is to ensure that African-American students are well prepared and ready to work in high-paying jobs.
Oldham revealed that at present, about 3% of such jobs are held by African-Americans, a statistic he is not too proud of.
Bet.com notes that according to a 2015 Pew Research, about 300,000 students were enrolled in HBCUs at a point in time, which is a significant increase over the last decade.
Oldham’s approach at TLI, YEN.com.gh understands, is to ensure that graduates get opportunities to work in companies such as Deloitte and IBM.
Meanwhile, a young boy has been captured in a video conducting a balancing act on a unicycle and has attracted applause from several people.
The unidentified boy is seen on the unicycle with bowls arranged on his feet. As he sways forward and backward, he suddenly lifts his leg and tosses the bowls in the air.
The bowls land in an arranged order on his head on which another bowl is placed.
