Data scientist Bahirah Adewunmi—and Booz Allen—are being honored for technology leadership and innovation. The Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) recently named Adewunmi as one of six NextGen Leaders, and the firm as a Tech 100 Company. NVTC represents the national capital region’s technology community and annually awards companies and people who drive innovation and contribute to the region’s economic growth.
“What makes someone a next-generation technology leader? An entrepreneurial, innovative spirit and a commitment to advancing technologies that are ethical and equitable,” said Booz Allen Chief Technology Officer Susan Penfield. “Bahirah exemplifies this as she supports client missions and helps build our cyber, artificial intelligence (AI), and data science capabilities and I’m thrilled to see her receive this honor.”
