Career Communications Group (CCG) and Raytheon Technologies are building on their current partnership and bolstering efforts to attract, develop, and retain a more diverse pipeline of STEM professionals within the aerospace and defense industry.
As part of the expanded agreement, Raytheon Technologies will become a presenting sponsor for several global industry events and programs that promote significant achievement amongst science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professionals in underrepresented communities.
Raytheon Technologies will also have access to CCG’s technology and engineering network to build new relationships with industry organizations and fill job openings with diverse talent.
“Diversity in the workforce, particularly within the technology sector, sparks great innovation, drives revenue, and accelerates economic growth,” said Tyrone Taborn, CEO of Career Communications Group. “Continuing to partner with companies like Raytheon Technologies, which has a vast network of bright technology and engineering leaders, is helping to bridge the STEM workforce gap that is prevalent within communities of color.”
CCG’s flagship programs and events include its STEM City USA Metaverse platform, the Women of Color (WOC) STEM conference, the Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA), BEYA Stars & Stripes, and the BEYA Pre-College and WOC Pre-College programs.
CCG’s retention, recruiting and employee recognition events and programs attract participation from thousands of engineering and technology professionals across leading technical industries. To date, the organization has helped to place thousands of students and professionals into internships and careers for some of the nation’s top companies.
Raytheon Technologies’ sponsorship demonstrates the company’s commitment to addressing systemic equity issues and building a future workforce that looks more like the world its employees live in. In addition to the sponsorships, the company will participate in speaking engagements, key events for senior government and military officials, career fairs and professional development sessions, and engage with K-12 students about the importance of STEM education.
Career Communications Group, Inc. (CCG) publications target students actively pursuing paths to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers. CCG publications promote STEM as an integral part of global competitiveness and America’s advancement.
