Ted Colbert, who was honored as the 2022 Black Engineer of the Year, played a pivotal role in launching Boeing into the Web 3.0 era through his leadership in developing the digital twin Initiative. Recently, during a Career Communications Group event, The Boeing Company presented a seminar that delved deeper into the BEYA Conference theme of “Becoming Everything You Are.”
