Diversity Is What Diversity Does

Our first of an ongoing series of interviews in Honor of STEM Diversity has led us into the offices of the Central Intelligence Agency, more publicly known as the (CIA).  In today’s Feature story, we are introduced to an African American first generation college student turned military man born in Jamaica, who went into the Air Force, and retired only to come into the CIA out of a sheer will to continue serving his country.  Oddly enough his first day of service at the CIA was one day after the infamous 9-11.  While we only touch upon this story, as a small piece of our discussion with Deputy Chief of Staff Associate Directorate of Military Affairs for the Central Intelligence Agency.   The Andy Anderson interview was inspiring, and described a leader commited to cause, country, and a continued thirst to carry out the true definition of freedom.  We believe you will too be inspired as you learn more about Andy Anderson. 


Understanding the very process associated with the pursuit of any worthwhile goal helps to both shape and define clarity when it comes to developing an idea and achieving a mission.  Now that we lhave aunched our Black History Month Campaign is“EveryDay” in Honor of STEM Diversity, it has become clear to me that we have a disconnect between what the public understands about all of this "Big" “data" that is being made available thanks to technology, and the internet.  It’s actually a laughable conundrum to me because in 2009, when we started Open Government TV knowing that it was our primary intent to help the public understand the information government was putting out into the public square, that many had no real understanding how we went from KDM & Associates, LLC (www.kdm-assoc.com)  to Open Government TV (www.opengovtv.com).  Unlike the advocacy organizations who have for years, demanded that the Government make information “Open” and (transparent), we were focused purely on finding ways for the public to actually understand the overflow of available information.  


Black History Month and STEM Diversity is “EveryDay”

First, it is important to share that as an African American CEO of a media marketing company, writing this story in honor of STEM Diversity during Black History Month may be one of the most personally rewarding and inspiring stories for me.  The reason why is simple.  Because I believe that today’s feature story will make a positive impact on so many young men and women.  I firmly believe that every other young person who seeks to see, and then accept having a vision will be inspired by our campaign, Black History is “EveryDay”  In honor of STEM Diversity 

“Open" A Door No One Can Close”

With so much evil and negative news in the world, so much injustice, protests, and unrest in the streets, from Paris, to Syria, to Chicago, to Cleveland, it would almost seem that there has been a prophetic reality described to mankind centuries ago taking shape right before our very eyes as we watch the news, and read the newspapers.   And so during the most inspirational, liberating and empowering times of the year, OGTV brings to you, a new feature title channel whose content will dilligently seek out positive content.   In turn, we trust this channel will inspire America to believe in the source of our nation's strength, and to aspire to achieve, promote and demand excellence and restoration to our nation.  The rock and the foundation by which our very constitution was based upon on, and declared by the founding leaders of our nation.  Welcome to our very first feature news channel entitled:

"Open" A Door No One Can Close.

CIA Vows to Create More Agents of Color

      University of Texas Chancellor William McRaven, former Director of Central Intelligence Porter Goss, and Intelligence Studies Project Director Steve Slick joined Director Brennan for a roundtable discussion on September 15, 2015.


Universities Have a Choice

First, let me start off by thanking all of the positive feedback that we have received on our last OGTV Feature story entitled:  The Education of War.

The Education of War

Admittedly, today’s OGTV Feature story has taken some weeks to craft.  Today’s story supports three themes. The first theme touches on our nation’s recent change of course on the withdrawal of our troops in Afghanistan.  Secondly, in this story, we look at the plight of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the eyes of a legacy non profit.   Thirdly, OGTV’s attempts to bring into attention, a comparison to the recruitment and retention challenges facing both Historically Black Colleges, and our US military.    We anticipated as we developed this story that  this conversation could find its way into corporate board rooms, military offices, and potentially in the halls of Congress, especially after the emergence of a tech diversity generated movement by CBC Tech2020.    OGTV does not take full credit for the authorship of all of the content of today’s story, but we are happy to give due credit to those organizations whose writings, and presentations have helped us to develop and rebroadcast a very well organized set of thoughts to discuss data supported realities.  OGTV will aspire to help create an environment to develop a set of recommendations for both HBCU’s, and the U.S. military to address these challenges by following up with additional segments to this OGTV Feature;"The Education of War".    Keith Moore OGTV Founder

Inclusive Competitiveness: A Bipartisan Economic Movement for 2016

Reverberations of the coming change to America’s longstanding economic narrative are currently rippling through the state of Ohio, a perennial political battleground in the heartland of America, and extending outward across multiple states with growing interest throughout the landscape of historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). Leading this new movement of “Inclusive Competitiveness,” is its visionary architect, Johnathan Holifield, Esq.

Time for Black Parents to Update ‘The Talk’

“The talk” we inherited from the 20th century was based upon fear. The talk of the 21st century should include vision, encouragement, enlightenment and awareness of the new economic game and how to compete in a knowledge-based, tech-driven, globally competitive innovation economy. Black boys (and girls) have clearly demonstrated they can compete well in any game they are taught. While we teach them techniques in how to remain safe walking home (and incidents with the police), shouldn’t we also instruct them on how to compete as high-growth entrepreneurs who create jobs and generational wealth while increasing their net worth and the economic competitiveness of the nation?
