Was there a 2007 National Women of No Color Technology Awards?
What an ugly, racicst title.
Sorry, but this is absolutely rediculous...and, IMHO, un-American.
If these women, or any other, achieve technological innovation or excellence that benifits the nation, then by all means, honor them nationally...their skin color, race, haricolor, eye color, the size of their thighs, etc. ad nauseum not-with-standing.
By doing this, the foolish, mushy, liberal minds that came up with it are perpetuating the thought and myth that woman of color MUST be classed apart because they are somehow unable to compete when grouped with everyone else. They are not only disciminating against woman who are not "of color", they are discriminating against and demeaning the very people who get such awards.
Either their ideological blindness and emotion prevents them from seeing this...or, more likely, they are doing it with a will.
My question is, why does Northrop Grumman employ so many women whose specialty is Color Technology?
Naaaah... That would be rubbing it in. I'm sure that they honored them by doing nothing for them.
It seems condescending to me.

Ah yes - The vaunted techno-twofers!
I have no gripes about women or minorities in the high-tech fields - provided they compete with white guys like me on the basis of their talent, and not on their gender/skin color.
If they are better than me - I’d best catch the heck up.
If they are not better, they should be doing the catch-up work.
“I have no gripes about women or minorities in the high-tech fields - provided they compete with white guys like me on the basis of their talent, and not on their gender/skin color.”
How intolerant of you. /s
Most large companies have quotas for anyone non-white and non-male. HR will go to hiring managers and tell them to focus on ‘minority’ candidates. Being a white male does not look good on the resume.
Now if someone could please tell me what skin pigmentation level or genital configuration has to do with technological innovation?
“..National Women of Color Technology Awards..”
Is there such a thing as a National Colorless Women Technology Award?
Tan is a color
Naw, there’s awards for women engineers as well, in order to make sure they don’t think they can compete with men in the field.
As a NASA retiree who had the privilege of working on our space program from the days of Werner Von Braun recently lamented, “I remember when we used to be the best and the brightest. Now all we are is the most colorful”.
I’m always tempted to ask these folks who are so enamored with using minorities as props to showcase their own conceited sense of enlightenment what percent of their technology was the result of the efforts of the most despicable group of individuals, i.e. white men.
