Group Leader, Civil Agency and Commercial Business Portfolio, Booz Allen Hamilton

Karen Dahut is set to make huge strides in 2018, taking over Booz Allen Hamilton’s defense business after longtime head Joseph Logue retires June 30. Until then, Dahut leads Booz’s $1.5 billion civil agency and commercial business portfolio. Talking with FedScoop, she encouraged men and women of all kinds to take the leap into STEM careers because of the immense shortage of talent and the opportunities the field provides. “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,” she said. “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.”
