Lockheed Martin’s large workforce includes an army of 49,000 engineers, scientists, and information technologists.

With Lockheed’s future success depending on a constant supply of talent in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, the industry leader partners with organizations like 4‑H to educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers, and mathematicians.

Charles Johnson-Bey,  currently the director of engineering and technology at Lockheed Martin, and a 2018 BEYA winner, is one of the most outstanding STEM mentors and volunteers at Lockheed.

Johnson-Bey is active in representing Lockheed Martin at community organizations such as 4‑H, which reaches kids in every corner of America – from urban neighborhoods to suburban schoolyards to rural farming communities.

At 51, Johnson-Bey has had a wealth of experience.

He has spent his entire career solving complex engineering and technology problems. He’s been a professor and a researcher, earned a doctorate in electrical engineering, worked at Motorola research labs and Corning’s Research and Development Center, and is in a 14-year tenure at Lockheed Martin.

When he talks to young people as 4-H professional, Johnson-Bey emphasizes the importance of pursuing work and a career that one loves.  He said workplaces are becoming more accepting of the diverse characteristics of its workforce.

As a Lockheed Martin engineer, Johnson-Bey serves as a mentor to youth across the country throughout each stage, amplifying the 4‑H /Lockheed Martin partnership and making an even greater impact on today’s youth.

4-H has a network of 500,000 volunteers and 3,500 4‑H professionals provide caring and supportive mentoring to all 6 million 4‑H’ers, helping them grow into true leaders.
