Presented at the annual Women of Color STEM Conference in Detroit this October, the awards recognize women of color in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math who create, innovate, and inspire.
GLOBE, which celebrates its anniversary this October, has been Booz Allen’s LGBTQ+ employee business resource group for 20 years. For Lead Data Scientist Steven Roush, Booz Allen’s commitment to diversity and inclusion was a big reason he selected the firm for the next step in his professional journey.
Growing up, there were only two careers that interested Booz Allen Lead Associate Duvelza Saenz: cyber warrior or Xena the Warrior Princess. Lucky for the cyber world, Booz Allen, and the many women and girls Saenz mentors and supports, she went with the former.
A passion for bringing people together—including the next generation
“I enjoy the collaborative environment that Booz Allen encourages,” Saenz said. “We have awesome team members with unique backgrounds who are open to innovative ideas.”
Where should governments focus their digital protection amid unprecedented risk? How can technology and defense organizations bring more women into leadership roles? What does the future look like in artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and beyond?
Booz Allen explored these questions and more at The Atlantic Festival. The event took place Sept. 24-26 in Washington, DC, and highlights are now available online.
As Booz Allen Lead Associate Ashely Fagan manages three contracts with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and oversees 75 employees, he wears a lanyard with his security badge—and a Pride pin.
On October 11, which is National Coming Out Day, and every day, “I always feel that I can bring my true self to work,” Fagan said.

Do you find yourself strategizing about what it will mean for your career “when this person leaves,” or “when that person gets promoted?” Are you putting your career advancement in the context of others’ roles and responsibilities?
This type of thinking is based on an underlying belief of scarcity--that there are only a finite number of leadership roles and that something needs to shift for your big break to happen.
