As innovations like artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics, and cyber transform our world, the demand for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professionals is increasing exponentially. Closing this gap is an urgent challenge—and a unique opportunity to build a more equitable workforce.
The Booz Allen Foundation is using technology and innovation to seize this opportunity by improving social structures in traditionally underrepresented communities, empowering people to break the cycle of structural impediments, and building generational resilience.
In 2022, these efforts empowered youth in areas from cybersecurity to robotics, engaged employees in the process, and laid the groundwork for a nationwide transformation in AI education.
“We are proud of the progress we have made towards leveling the playing field for underrepresented youth in neighborhoods where we live and work,” says Booz Allen Foundation Executive Director Christine Hoisington.
