Dr. Pinkett and his co-founders started BCT Partners over 20 years ago. Their mission is to harness the power of diversity, insights, and innovation to transform lives, accelerate equity, and create lasting change. As a subject matter expert in DEI, Randal serves as a speaker, author, trainer, facilitator, and strategist for organizations across the globe. In the wake of social unrest that has been plaguing our world, Randal launched a video, “Candid Conversation with a Black Businessman: 7 Myths of Racial Equity,” and a webinar series called
“CEO 2 CEO: A Path Forward — If Not Now, Then, When Does Race Matter?.” They are both
designed to help business leaders identify racism within their organization and
create a solid plan of action to address the issue.
Many of his books have also been written with the intent of helping others benefit from his journey, such as Black Faces in Whites Places: 10 Game-Changing Strategies to Achieve Success and Find Greatness and Black Faces in High Places: 10 Strategic Actions to Reach the Top and Stay There, both co-authored with Dr. Jeffrey Robinson. He is also the co-founder of the Redefine the Game Institute, a management-level education, and career advancement program designed for business professionals and community leaders. The culturally-specific course curriculum consists of an 11-month interactive business and organizational learning regimen based on the book, Black Faces in White Places.
