US Black Engineer magazine, published by Career Communications Group, has released this year’s list of Historically Black College and University (HBCU) engineering supporters. Of the many corporations on the list, a select few topped each category for their assistance in strengthening the education to employment pipelines for minority students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
“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 survey report range from Fortune 500 companies to startups. The survey’s methodology has traditionally been to ask HBCU engineering deans which employers provide the most support. 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 promote 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 (CCG), a company dedicated to celebrating diversity and promoting equal opportunity for minorities and women in STEM.
