Yesterday I had the honor of hosting two very successful roundtable events in Washington, DC on the topic of African-American males in STEM. We had an all-star cast participating on Capitol Hill and at the National Press Club and I’m looking forward to seeing what comes out of it. Talk is good. Action is even better.
Thank you very much to all those who participated in the event. Our panelists were:
Rod Adkins: former senior vice president of IBM; president of 3RAM Group LLC, a privately held company specializing in capital investments, business consulting services and property management.
Reggie DesRoches: chair of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Tech.
Jeremy Feaster: Ph.D. candidate in chemical engineering at Stanford University
Gary May: dean of the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech.
Darryll Pines: dean of the Clark School of Engineering at University of Maryland
Guy Primus: co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of The Virtual Reality Company, a Los Angeles-based content studio dedicated to virtual reality storytelling.
Karl Reid: executive director of the National Society of Black Engineers
Cedric Stallworth: assistant dean for outreach, enrollment and community for the College of Computing at Georgia Tech.
