"This isn’t about crystal balls. It is about seeing the inevitably of major capabilities that will be available two or three decades out, and how you should act today to be in position to make the best use of these fantastic building blocks of the future to advance your mission."
Since 2015, we have partnered with Girlstart, the largest and longest-running community-based informal science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education nonprofit in the nation specifically dedicated to empowering and equipping girls in STEM through year-round educational programming. We have supported the organization’s national growth into Houston, Boston and St. Louis through funding the availability of summer camps and after-school programs.
“I want to listen to women’s stories to ensure that all are heard and develop actionable solutions to address inequities.”
This is what “Choose to Challenge,” the theme of this year’s Women’s History Month at Booz Allen, means to Senior Associate Michelle Ralston, outgoing co-chair of the firm’s Global Women’s Business Resource Group (BRG), which creates opportunities for women to build networks through professional events, workshops, and development programs.
In the 1997 movie “Good Will Hunting,” a genius janitor taught himself advanced mathematics from equations left on a professor’s chalkboard. Two decades later, Josh Carroll similarly pored over equations on YouTube—today's chalkboard—during shifts as a security guard.
In Carroll’s case—the experience was transformative: making him a YouTube and media star in his own right. Highlights follow from Carroll’s journey from self-taught math scholar to Booz Allen physicist and technical support engineer.
From Alaska to Guam, Hawaii to Japan, and South Korea, Booz Allen’s Pacific Rim team works on projects that affect lives, businesses, and governments: efforts that include streamlining disaster relief, strengthening national security, and establishing infrastructure.
Through expertise in cybersecurity, data science, threat reduction, special operations, and beyond, they are tackling vital issues. Three employees recently had their efforts acknowledged by global defense leaders.
Since 2012, we have partnered with Discovery World, a fully interactive museum in Milwaukee that is focused on connecting innovation, science, technology and the environment. We supported the development of the "MilliporeSigma Virtual Explorer," an exhibit that allows visitors to easily explore various science concepts using virtual reality (VR) equipment. Now, we’re helping Discovery World expand this VR exhibit to include new infrastructure that accommodates increased visitor demand and additional workstations.
"Seeing this level of commitment and passion from NortonLifeLock leadership was energizing and I’m excited about the opportunities ahead of us."

With the rise of virtual learning due to COVID-19, MilliporeSigma continues to leverage its Curiosity Labs™ at Home science education programming to spark curiosity and inspire the next generation of scientists. This content is now available in four additional languages — German, French, Portuguese and Spanish — directly through the Curiosity Labs™ at Home website.
For more than eight years, we have partnered with KIPP St. Louis, a public charter school in St. Louis that primarily serves students living below the poverty line. We have helped expand the capacity of the organization’s middle school science program, increasing access to science equipment and exposure to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers.
