Stephanie Turner has been appointed MITRE’s vice president of inclusion, diversity and social innovation. She leads the organization’s inclusion and diversity programs, and will establish a new function for social innovation programs.
“MITRE has always performed a strong social impact role in our communities,” said Jason Providakes, MITRE president and CEO. “The creation of this new position is to strengthen inclusion and diversity at MITRE as well as demonstrate MITRE’s commitment to social innovation and change in our communities by fostering more collaboration and building networks.”
Turner will help MITRE to maximize relationships with external organizations, with an initial focus on STEM education in underserved communities. She will also lead corporate social responsibility initiatives.
Turner comes to the task with 25 years of human resources leadership experience in strategic planning, professional development, process improvement, talent acquisition, multicultural marketing and employee engagement. She most recently served as vice president of diversity and inclusion strategic engagement at Liberty Mutual Insurance.
“Stephanie is an accomplished leader with a track record of success developing and executing high impact inclusion and diversity programs and activities that strengthen culture and create an environment where talent can thrive, grow, and prosper,” said Kathleen Federico, MITRE senior vice president, chief human resources and strategic communications officer.
