Army leaders encourage women to fill STEM roles


The race for talent is real, and the Army is investing in women to fill leadership roles in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) for mission readiness.

Maj. Gen. Maria Barrett, head of the Army Network Enterprise Technology Command, believes the Army cannot leave any talent on the table. “The service needs to bring people in and engage them in a way that encourages them to participate.”

Like many of her female peers, Barrett said she has dedicated her career by not wanting others to focus on the fact she is a woman in the technology ranks, but rather on her merits as a Soldier.
