The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) uses an "end-to-end" membership model, reaching from teenagers through senior corporate executives, to implement mechanisms that work to increase the number of Black engineers. NSBE encourages the development of mentoring relationships that help students to excel academically, succeed professionally, and have a positive impact on the community through culturally responsible practices. The outcomes to date include 20 percent growth in the targeted population since 1999.
