Booz Allen Hamilton launched a new initiative in July called STEM Girls 4 Social Good, an effort to bring together professionals and University students with STEM backgrounds to work on some of the greatest problems pressing on society. During the kickoff week, Booz Allen partnered with Polaris Project and Girls, Inc. to host 40 girls for a week long camp investigating the problem of human trafficking by learning data science techniques.
Booz Allen people are known for their passion—and it’s not limited to delivering for clients. In 2014, when the firm challenged employees to volunteer 100,000 hours in honor of its 100th year in business, one team went above and beyond and had a nationwide impact.
A repeatable model for sustainable community change
What could Booz Allen do to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of military personnel and their families leaving active service and returning as veterans within our communities? That simple question inspired the Community Catalyst Initiative (CCI), an approach to community collaboration focused on driving sustainable impact for those in need.
