HUMANITARIAN

MY PHILOSOPY

God has truly blessed me. From a young age, I had a passion for learning and applying my talents to various subjects. As a result, I was never content to pursue just one topic of interest. So, while I studied engineering, I also wanted to learn about business. While I had an aptitude for technology, I also became fascinated by data analysis and how it could help inform decisions and lead to better outcomes. These variant pursuits led me to follow multiple paths simultaneously.  However, my core fundamental belief was to use my talents to serve a higher purpose. And that belief remains at the heart of everything that I do.

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

Working to achieve financial and social returns on investment.

Dr. Pinkett is a proud member of the LEAP Ambassador Community, a private community of non-profit thought leaders, leader practitioners, forward looking funders, policy makers, and instigators who believe that mission and performance are inextricably linked. All of his business ventures have sought to achieve the "double bottom-line" – doing well and doing good – financial returns on investment and social returns on investment. Each company has also emphasized giving back to the community.

His first company, Mind, Body & Soul Enterprises, was explicitly focused on mental, physical, and spiritual development. His second venture, MBS Educational Services & Training, did considerable work with students from grade school to graduate school.  They helped them consider and plan their future by addressing college planning, career planning, academic excellence, leadership, mentoring, and other professional development topics.

Next, the Inner City Consulting group identified innovative solutions to the pressing issues faced in urban communities and inner cities across the country. Access One Corporation provided broadband and telecommunications solutions in affordable housing for low-income residents and the community-based organizations that serve them.

Finally, his latest venture, BCT Partners, is a management, technology, and policy consulting firm based in Newark, NJ.  Their mission is to harness the power of diversity, expertise, and innovation to transform lives, accelerate equity, and create lasting change.  BCT has done a considerable amount of work on behalf of underserved and low-income communities, Black, Indigenous, and other people of color (BIPOC). Their work has involved organizations that serve the public, private, philanthropic, educational, faith-based, and nonprofit sectors.
