Brilliant minds and hard work have always been at the center of science and technology. The success of many corporations, including General Electric, is owed largely to the talented people that they employ. GE was amongst the first companies to embrace people of many races and creeds. Through their perseverance, inventions, and encouragement of future generations, these pioneers have made a lasting impact on their fields, and on STEM education.
