The BMF is recognised as a leading managerial thought leadership organisation at the forefront of transformation in Corporate South Africa and the Public Sector.


The BMF continues to be the primary black management organisation in the country. Although the strategic focus of the BMF is on black managers, our policy and philosophy is non-racial.
