Speaking at the annual Stars and Stripes Awards dinner on February 19, an event which honors Black Engineer of the Year Award winners (BEYA), Vice-chief of Naval Operations Admiral Michelle Howard gives remarks to those in attendance. The U.S Navy encourages the entrepreneurship and engineering skills needed to advance U.S. military strength at sea, and the annual event—now in its 30th year—helps to promote the scientific and engineering developments of African-American engineers.

The 2016 conference and awards ceremony was held in Philadelphia, PA.
