Career Communications Group, Inc. is taking part in Ford STEAM Day today. The Open House session for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math (STEAM) careers brings together many of the auto giant’s partners as well as teams from across the company who manage STEAM programs.
According to Ford, the experience enables their employees to see how being a part of this exciting and fulfilling work can make a difference for the future of students, the company, even their own children.
The Open House includes a call to action for employees where they will have the opportunity to sign up to make a difference in the lives and communities where Ford’s STEAM work is being implemented.
As an exhibitor for the Ford Open House, Career Communications Group (CCG) is demonstrating Ford supported program and collaboration with Ford employees.
CCG, a leading diversity talent management company, is also sharing the opportunities, benefits, and value of its programs and services, and showing off the work CCG is doing to advance STEAM education.
Over the past three decades, CCG has built strong, lasting partnerships with companies such as the Ford Motor Company. The strength of these relationships has been developed around substantive corporate diversity strategies that reap positive returns.
Many Ford employees have been featured in CCG’s group of magazines, such as US Black Engineer and the Women of Color; and conferences that provide a forum for organizations to find and retain the best and the brightest minority technologists.
Senior Ford leaders that have received Career Communications Group (CCG) awards include Dr. Ken Washington, chief technology officer of the Ford Motor Company, and Mrs. Donna L. Bell, director of research operations.
Mrs. Bell received the 2018 Technologist of the Year Award at CCG’s 23rd annual Women of Color in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Conference gala held October 13 in Detroit, MI.
Dr. Washington won a Black Engineer of the Year Award (BEYA) for Research Leadership at the BEYA STEM Conference in 2012.
CCG reaches tens of thousands of minority students and professionals each year with the goal of introducing them to opportunities and providing the motivation to take that next step to a high-potential, technology-oriented career.
CCG‘s long-term objective is to enhance the visibility of the partners’ diversity programs, within the minority technology community and within their own organizations.
