SAIC Contributes to ‘Women In Military Service For America Memorial’; Amy Alving Comments

SAIC (NYSE: SAI) has made another donation to support the Women In Military Service For America Memorial.

The memorial honors the more than 2 million women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including support of efforts on behalf of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education.

According to the firm, “SAIC made a $25, 000 contribution to the Women’s Memorial Foundation, which built and maintains the memorial, and an additional $10, 000 donation to support the memorial foundation’s newly formed advisory committee on STEM, which works to encourage women to serve in STEM-related fields in the military.”

The firm donated an additional $35, 000 last year.

“This donation supporting the Memorial’s STEM efforts builds on SAIC’s enterprise wide initiative to help inspire, engage and educate students in K-12 STEM education, ” said Amy Alving, SAIC chief technology officer. “We hope this initiative will engage and motivate students to pursue careers in STEM, while helping address the projected science and technology workforce shortfall.”
