Peraton Panelists Inspire Cybersecurity and Engineering Students

A number of Peraton professionals recently spoke to North Carolina State University’s Code Black student-led organization, focusing specifically on the importance of students pursuing educations and careers in cybersecurity and engineering and the potential impact to our national security.

Code Black’s mission is “dedicated to solidifying the presence of Black students in NC State’s computer science department by providing opportunities for community development, professional success, and departmental interactions.”

Peraton’s Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer, Laila Salguero, stated the mission aligns to Peraton’s business objectives to creating a diverse pipeline of highly skilled talent to work on our missions of consequence.

Peraton’s dynamic speakers shared their career journeys, provided advice for the students in successfully launching and advancing their careers, and answered student questions.

NC State’s DEI Council lead and Code Black sponsor, Tim MacNeil, thanked Peraton, saying, “Code Black really appreciates having companies that take the time to give them support and make an effort to get to know them better.”
