HII Employees Receive National Recognition for STEM Achievements

Ten employees of Huntington Ingalls Industries were among those recognized for achievements in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) during the 18th annual Women of Color STEM Conference. Eight award-winners represented the company’s Ingalls Shipbuilding division, and two represented HII’s Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division.

HII shipbuilders were recognized with Technology All-Star awards, which recognize accomplished women of color from mid-level to advanced stages of their careers who have demonstrated excellence in the workplace and in their communities. Also, employees received Technology Rising Star awards, which recognize young women who are helping to shape technology for the future.

The recipients were honored during the Women of Color STEM Conference, held Oct. 17-19 in Dallas. The conference provides a national forum to celebrate the achievements of women in STEM, creates an environment for professional networking, and offers opportunities for role models to develop and nurture professional mentoring relationships.
