ARLINGTON, VA, September 6--The Association of Naval Services Officers (ANSO) hosted their first Eastern Region Professional Development Symposium Friday at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia. The symposium brought together Hispanic officers, civilian executives, enlisted personnel, and other senior leaders in the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and maritime industry to learn from, network with, and mentor one another, as well as conduct professional development training.
Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert keynoted the event on the theme “Diversity and how to achieve it.” Not much can be done without a diverse workforce, the admiral said. “We can't be ready without a collective representation to build the Navy of tomorrow,” he added. “It took a while to build an all-volunteer force; and it has to be diverse because that's where the future is.”

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 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.
