The 2013 Emerald Honorees come from industry, government, research institutions and academia as well as nonprofits. They are distinguished innovators making a difference in science, technology, engineer and math (STEM) fields. These thought leaders are paving the way and changing the world.

The Scientist of the Year award represents a recognition of merit, broad effect on people in many disciplines, and value to society as a whole. The editorial staff of Career Communications Group selects the Scientist of the Year annually with the advice of an independent panel of judges who represent a cross section of respected technical expertise within the research and development community.

The 2013 Emerald Honorees recognize innovators who demonstrate excellence in science, engineering, or technology, leadership in their workplaces and communities, outstanding work as role models and mentors and commitment to recruiting and retaining minorities in the nation's science and technology enterprises. This February, the nationís finest minority researchers and executive-level decision makers in science will share the spotlight at the annual BEYA STEM Conference in Washington, D.C.

Black Technology

A virtual spokesperson for black technology, BlackEngineer aspires to serve as leading news and information provider on the advancements in black technology with deep insights into black engineering, black entrepreneurs, black education, and historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). In fact, BlackEngineer is one of the very few to promote the achievements of black technology. The Black engineer of the year awards (BEYA) is one of our successful ventures to promote black technology, progress and achievements made in black technology, and the sentiments of the Black community in the US, the UK, Caribbean, and Africa.


Black Entrepreneurs

Black technology entrepreneurs are increasingly providing the horsepower that drives the global economy. Over the last two decades, black entrepreneurs have created more jobs, and contributed much more to the economic expansion of the Black community as a whole, than any black pastor or politician. Black entrepreneurs are taking risks and building businesses that generate economic growth and increase prosperity in underserved areas, as more minority-owned and minority-focused businesses emerge, willing to serve the financial needs of Black entrepreneurs. US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine's annual list of Top Black Technology Entrepreneurs reflects the expanding scope of leading Black entrepreneurs in information technology, homeland security, and defense.
