US Black Engineer magazine, published by Career Communications Group, Inc. (CCG) has released the 2022 Top Supporters of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Engineering list. The announcement follows the publication’s annual BEYA STEM Conference that took place in February.
Of the many companies and corporations that were voted for based on their support to HBCUs, a select number of these companies topped the list in each category for their exceeding assistance towards strengthening the education to employment pipelines for Black students in STEM. The complete 2022 list of HBCU Top Supporters can be found here.
“The past couple of years were critical when it came to underserved communities staying connected through STEM,” said Tyrone Taborn, CEO of Career Communications Group, Inc. “These supporters have gone above and beyond to help solidify the school-to-career pipeline within the HBCUs and the companies that are seeking top talent.”
Taborn said that the companies included in the 2022 survey range from Fortune 500 companies to startups. The survey’s methodology has been to ask HBCU engineering deans which employers give the most support to their programs. The deans vote for their supporters, and members of the non-profit organization, Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) are also able to vote.
Career Communications Group has continued to push a number of workshops, career days, and webinars to provide access to resources. The STEM CITY HBCU Village is one of the spaces that was created to bring HBCUs and corporate leaders together.
US Black Engineer and Information Technology magazine is published by Career Communications Group, Inc. (CCG).
