It’s also a chance for DLH to highlight the work of the innovative women who serve in leadership roles throughout our company. As we conclude our celebration of Women’s History Month 2022 we are shining a spotlight on some of the women whose expertise and passion drive DLH toward performance excellence.
These leaders at our company stand on the shoulders of the women pioneers in public health, military and government service, information technology, and science who came before. These women overcame doubts and systemic exclusion to reach the top of their fields and improve lives.
