Speaking on the news, BYP Founder Kike Oniwinde, said:"We are truly excited about our partnership with Facebook because it opens up more opportunities for the network. This came about after they attended our Leadership Conference and were blown away by the vast amount of talent in the community. They have ambitious 2020 goals to improve black representation and inclusion within their organisation and we look forward to being part of the solution".
