BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. – Airmen recently spent time in Silicon Valley learning from leading tech companies as part of ongoing efforts to drive Education with Industry.
The four-day event, sponsored by the Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition team and the Air Force Institute of Technology, partnered with innovation giants to develop 38 EWI fellowship partners and provide networking opportunities.
The companies included reputable names like Google, Facebook, Tesla, VMware, LinkedIn, Cisco, and Liquid Robotics.
The group was exposed to industry best practices within the realms of security, innovation, diversity, machine learning, sustainability, and veteran affairs.
"The expanded cultural view promoted by commercial companies allows EWI fellows to identify and implement key industry traits that directly correlate to Air Force operations for the progress of our military," said Capt. Ronisha Carter, an EWI at VMware.
EWI developmental teams are looking for high-performing officers and enlisted members with an eagerness and aptitude to learn from top-tier organizations.
