Harris-Hosted Summit Tackles Aerospace & Defense Workforce Needs

Harris collaborated with the Aerospace Industries Association to facilitate a two-day summit that brought together industry, government and academic stakeholders to discuss the future of aerospace and defense workforce.

The event took place at a Harris facility in Palm Bay, Florida, and sought to promote science, technology, engineering and math education strategies meant to help grow workforce across the A&D sector, the company said Wednesday.

“Aerospace and defense companies create exciting innovations and offer young scientists and engineers tremendous, high-paying career opportunities,” said William Brown, chairman, president and CEO of Harris.

Brown added the company forum offered public and private sector organizations an opportunity to explore ways to attract young scientists and engineers to the industry.

The summit was sponsored by Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Rockwell Collins and Larsen Motorsports.
