Black History Month is a time to reflect on the contributions and achievements that the Black community has made in U.S. and world history. SAIC recognizes this importance, and in a new video below, Black leaders at our company share what it means to our organization. We are also pleased to spotlight some of our colleagues who have made remarkable contributions here at SAIC.

Additionally, through SAIC's diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) initiatives, we support and invest in Black-affiliated organizations whose missions align with our DE&I goals. We honor our partnerships through the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which provides scholarships to students at public historically Black colleges and universities, and through Black Girls Code, which provides girls of color ages seven to 17 with opportunities to learn in-demand technology skills.

Watch the video and proceed to learn more about some of our important company contributors.
