TYSONS CORNER, VA August 5, 2015 — Stephanie Hill, vice president and general manager of ship and aviation systems at Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) Mission Systems and Training, has called for greater efforts to keep students engaged in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to help fight a looming shortage in the country’s STEM-oriented workforce, ExecutiveBiz reported Tuesday.
“Too often, we miss out on a large swath of potential science and engineering professionals because they don’t look like the scientists and engineers in those old NASA photos and news clips, ” Hill was quoted as saying in an Oak Ridger report posted Monday.
“To really be a great nation, we need to do a much better job reaching out to young girls and minority communities to help them access STEM educational opportunities and really see themselves as future scientists and engineers, ” added Hill, speaking to an audience at the 2015 TVC National Summit.
