Career Communications Group (CCG) has partnered with The Kedrick Scribner Foundation to help struggling widows of Nigerian police officers killed in the line of duty. Last week, the foundation held a food distribution event at the Nigeria Mounted Troops Police Barracks in Ikeja, the capital city of Lagos State, as part of its “Feeding widows of fallen heroes of the Nigerian Police Force” campaign.
“BEYA, Women of Color, and CCG are proud to join with the Kedrick Scribner Foundation in feeding the widows of fallen heroes of the Nigerian Police Force,” said Tyrone Taborn, CEO of Career Communications Group (CCG) and chairman of the Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA) and Women of Color in STEM conferences.
Career Communications Group (CCG) has worked with corporations and organizations for over 30 years to develop diverse talent with the needed skills for 21st-century science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers. CCG produces the annual BEYA Conference in February, offering students and employers networking opportunities at one of the most significant diversity STEM events in the United States. Attendees at the Women of Color (WOC) Conference, held during the fall, are also positioned to interact with employers as they promote significant achievement in STEM careers.
The Kedrick Scribner Foundation has impacted more than 400,00 people and raised over $200,000 through donations and fundraising events. The foundation’s vision is to become a leader in providing the resources necessary for impoverished people to live sustainably. The foundation aims to provide food, water, shelter, clothing, hygiene supplies, medical treatment, sanitation, education, and vocational training to the underprivileged while helping people acquire the skills they need to become self-sufficient.
