For the second year in a row, Booz Allen Executive Vice President Karen Dahut has been named to FedScoop’s prestigious list of “Top Women in Tech” for 2018.” The list “honors the elite, talented, intelligent and successful women influencing and shaping the federal government’s use of modern technology.”
Dahut leads Booz’ civil agency and commercial business portfolio. In June she will take over Booz Allen’s defense business after longtime head Joseph Logue retires. She says, “The demand for technical and STEM related jobs are extraordinary, and the gap between the supply of this talent and its demand is increasing every day. We need everyone to consider jobs in these skill areas — not just the engineers and computer scientists. We need music majors, physics and science majors to consider these roles as well. We know that people from all backgrounds can be successful in technology related jobs.”
To determine the Top Women in Tech List, FedScoop seeks out a diverse list of women from all walks of life, perspectives and backgrounds — from Capitol Hill and the White House to Fortune 500 technology firms — who each have one thing in common: a passion for driving digital transformation to better serve the American citizenry.
