Back 2 STEM Night
ValidaTek participated at the Dunbar High School 6th Annual Back 2 STEM Night on Wednesday, August 21st. The event is designed to expose students to the STEM fields while preparing them for college and the workplace. There were approximately 130 parents and students in attendance. During the event, there was a panel of STEM professionals from various sectors including education, corporate and agency IT, and industry associations – all of whom shared their knowledge and experiences in their respective fields. Our very own Iris Saunders and Quinton Gipson participated in two panel discussions and did an amazing job sharing their educational and professional journeys while mentoring youth on how to prepare for their future careers. In addition, Floyd White, ValidaTek’s Talent Acquisition Manager, chimed in from the audience and conveyed words of wisdom on the importance of developing excellent writing skills to be prepared and successful as rising STEM professionals.
