To be held April 15-19 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Washington DC-Crystal
City (300 Army Navy Drive, Arlington, VA), NAPE’s Professional Development
Institute is the premier professional development event for educators and
advocates who are dedicated to removing barriers to equal opportunity in
education and the workforce.

“We are thrilled to have Stephanie Hill as our keynote speaker for this year’s
Professional Development Institute,” says NAPE Chief Executive Officer Mimi
Lufkin. “Her work as both a software engineer and a leader at Lockheed Martin
and her passion for engaging youth in STEM (science, technology, engineering
and mathematics) ties directly with NAPE’s own work in increasing the
recruitment, academic performance, and program completion of women and
under-represented students in STEM courses.”

At Lockheed Martin, Hill leads approximately 10,000 employees who are
responsible for a wide array of information technology systems and services in
areas such as information and cyber security, finance, transportation, citizen
protection, energy, health care, and space exploration.

Hill joined Lockheed Martin in 1987 as a software engineer and assumed
positions of increasing responsibility. She was recognized for career
achievement in industry by the Women of Color STEM, and UMBC named her
Outstanding Alumna of the Year in Engineering & Information Technology. Hill
enjoys mentoring students and served on the Maryland Governor’s STEM Task
Force in 2009.

In addition to the keynote address, NAPE’s Professional Development Institute
will feature workshop sessions providing participants with research-based
strategies and innovative tools to help in implementing practices aimed at
igniting access, equity, and diversity.

The Institute also allows attendees to network with educators, advocates, and
other equity professionals to discuss the impact of public policy on state and
local education and workforce development programs.
