Raytheon’s Re-Empower Program has given me exactly the type of opportunity I’d been seeking. Having paused my professional career over a decade ago in order to focus on raising our young children, I found it daunting to return to a workforce where my skills felt somewhat dated. Raytheon recognized this challenge and thanks to the training, mentorship, and support I’ve encountered through the Re-Empower Program, I am back on the career track I’ve wanted - helping to build systems that are critical to the success of our customer and the security of our nation.

– Nikki L., Senior Software Engineer Intelligence Information Services, GPS-OCX
