Now with a platform of over 40,000 members across the globe, this partnership marks another landmark moment for BYP Network. BYP Network are thrilled that their network can benefit from the unparalleled career and learning opportunities that Facebook has to offer.
BYP Network will facilitate this through their app as it allows direct access to Facebook jobs, blog and video content as well as Q&A from Facebook’s black senior leaders.

“We are truly excited about our partnership with Facebook because it opens up more opportunities for the network.
