The Conference, sponsored by Career Communications Group, Inc., was held in Dallas, Texas from November 3 – 5. It was established as a way to honor women of color who “demonstrate excellence in the STEM fields,” exhibit leadership skills, and encourage young women to pursue science and technical careers.
From MITRE, Miyoun Dobbs received the Managerial Leadership-Industry award; Christine Brown, Emilie Chow, and Dr. Pamela Thornton were named Technology All Stars; and Chun Ma was named a Technology Rising Star.
“These five award winners contribute extraordinary talent and expertise to help MITRE’s government sponsors and customers solve some of the nation’s most complex challenges,” said Dr. Lisa Bender, vice president and chief human resources officer at MITRE. “They also share their time and talent with young women, helping to cultivate the next generation of STEM leaders.”
