“We are not just focused on recruitment,” said Tyrone Taborn, CEO of Career Communications Group, Inc., “but looking at how these corporations are supporting HBCUs and enhancing the pipeline for minorities in STEM to find promising careers.”
The companies in the 2020 survey range from Fortune 500 companies to smaller startups focused on the impact. The survey’s methodology has been to ask HBCU Engineering deans which companies give the most support. The deans vote up their supporters, and members of non-profit Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) also vote.
“I am honored to congratulate the 2020 Top Supporters. Their partnership and continued support enable us to implement programs to attract, educate, graduate and place underrepresented minority students in engineering and computer science careers,” said Veronica Nelson, Executive Director of AMIE.
