#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:
- Hiring key leaders and strategically aligning with partners steeped in STEM backgrounds, with present day common goals, and military and civilian service excellence exemplified by proven track records.
- Developing our STEM Summer Internship Program for the fifth year to cultivate the best and brightest analytical thinkers, strategists, and future A&D problem solvers.
- Supporting the James Worth Bagley College of Engineering at Mississippi State University, Department of Aerospace Engineering, advancing the growth and development of our nation’s finest Aerospace engineers.
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”.
