In 2001, Sandra Evers-Manly spoke to US Black Engineer magazine and predicted that cheaper, high-tech filmmaking processes would create more opportunities for minorities.

She is the founder and president of the Black Hollywood Education and Resource Center in Los Angeles, which advocates for the empowerment of African Americans in the film industry.

Evers-Manly received the 2024 Co-Founders Award for The Arts at the 44th Links National Assembly this week.

This award is given to individuals who have significantly impacted the lives of others and society as a whole.

Evers-Manly is the executive producer of five short films on the impact of gang violence and the Academy Award-nominated short film “Last Breeze of Summer.”

She has developed an animated series called “Imani: the Super Little Engineer,” which introduces girls and students of color to engineering and other STEM fields.

Additionally, Evers-Manly started an initiative called “Films With A Purpose,” which has produced thought-provoking films to bring awareness to bullying, aging out of the foster care system, homelessness, and critical historical events.

During her career at Northrop Grumman, Evers-Manly was instrumental in founding and building the thriving Northrop Grumman Foundation, of which she was president.

Her team also helped Northrop Grumman receive the Ron Brown Award for Corporate Leadership and be named to DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies list.

Evers-Manly received a salute from Great Minds in STEM for her remarkable career at Northrop Grumman after 40 impactful years, and she left the company in June 2022.
