As a sales consultant, entrepreneur, inner city youth advocate and Diversity Champion with an extensive software development background, it is safe to say that Doug Menifee has always been fascinated with taking on and solving complex tasks and Diversity & Inclusion is no different!
After receiving his Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science from the historically black private university, Tuskegee University, his 20+ year career has spanned the industries of aeronautics and space administration, telecommunications, endpoint security software, digital brand protection and diversity recruitment with some of his responsibilities including sales, sales engineer, business development, software development, product management and implementation.
In his role as VP of Business Development at HBCU CONNECT, Doug holds the primary sales responsibility of serving the needs of the HBCU student and alumni audience by providing a platform for networking, professional opportunities, educational opportunities and connections with companies that are looking to hire from or brand themselves with this tight knit community.
When he’s not managing his Youth Football and Cheerleading organization or sharing the HBCU CONNECT story, Doug enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, reading, exercising and watching sports. As a lifelong Ohio native, all you need to get to know Doug is a 32” (or larger) television tuned to an Ohio sports event and a 6-pack of Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy.
