#KEM Values Strength through Diversity: Honoring DoD STEM Contributions during National African American History Month & National Engineers’ Week


#KEM joins the nation in celebrating National African American History Month (1-26 February) and National Engineers’ Week (19-25 February).

We honor all African Americans who have served our armed forces and contributed significantly to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) legacy in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) cultivating a “stronger, more diverse” military and civilian force.

In the spirit of National African American History Month and National Engineers’ Week, #KEM stays committed to ensuring a diverse and well educated STEM future workforce.  We develop and promote diverse present and future Aerospace and Defense (A&D) STEM teams and industry leaders that create effective solutions as DoD challenges rapidly increase globally through the following activities:


Major General Robert S. Ferrell, U.S. Army, shares #KEM’s value of “Strength through Diversity” best in the below video: “The strength of our Army is when all service members are working together to accomplish a common goal”.

#KEM honors the contributions of African Americans in #DoD by supporting and expanding #STEM education programs as a key factor for our country to maintain its innovative and global leadership.

For four years #KEM has run a summer Intern Program focused on developing future innovators.  Our interns work on robust, real-world Aerospace and Defense media, research and analysis, and competitive intelligence projects.

KEM Intern Program

A key tenant to the #KEM intern program is to motivate students to pursue degrees and careers in #STEM to continue the legacy of our founder and CEO, Ken Miller, who started as an Aerospace Engineering Major at Mississippi State University then served over 35 years in the U.S. Government and now runs our recognized global Defense and Aerospace consulting practice.
