Sondra Barbour, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Business Services and Chief Information Officer, has been honored as one of the 100 Women Leaders in STEM by STEMconnector™, an organization focused on improving STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education.
The 100 Women Leaders in STEM showcases the careers and initiatives of more than one hundred women leaders who are active role models for the underrepresented segment of women pursuing STEM careers. The publication features profiles of leaders in the corporate, government and nonprofit sectors. Also included are opinion editorials featuring interesting data and perspectives about women in STEM.
Edie Fraser, chief executive officer of STEMconnector, wrote in her opinion editorial, “Sondra Barbour is proud of [the] three women at Lockheed Martin who have risen to top leadership roles there. She urges women to get involved in organizations that educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers, and mathematicians.”
“It’s an honor to be included in the 100 Women Leaders in STEM and to be featured with so many remarkable women,” said Barbour. “I am also very proud to be able to share how Lockheed Martin is helping to inspire young people of all backgrounds to pursue a career in STEM.”
Barbour’s profile in the publication includes details on Lockheed Martin’s STEM outreach which includes non-profit and school partnerships. In 2011, Lockheed Martin dedicated 50 percent of our philanthropy to STEM education programs, which amounted to more than $13 million.
The publication will be used by STEMconnector, educators and other organizations to help advance the cause of attracting more girls and women to STEM careers.
