Working with African Ancestry was truly an enriching experience. I love that they exist and that they expand identity beyond the borders of this country. The work they do is scientific for sure, but it’s also spiritual.

Recognizing differences and valuing inclusion has long been part of Booz Allen’s culture and diversity remains one of our Core Values. We were honored to partner with African Ancestry as part of our firm-wide celebration of Black History Month.
Dina Abercrombie, Booz Allen Hamilton
We brought African Ancestry to George Mason University in celebration of our annual Black and African Heritage Month. African Ancestry has left an indelible mark on the lives of those in attendance! One of the most rewarding events we have had the pleasure of hosting on campus!
