MITRE Honored for Technical Expertise and Workplace Excellence During 2022

Industry and government recognized MITRE on several fronts in 2022—from our cyber capabilities to disability inclusion and our veterans hiring practices. 

These awards validate our progress toward parallel priorities: solving national and global challenges and fostering a culture of belonging. Both are essential to our success as a company committed to the public good. 

We’re proud to be recognized for our technical expertise and our workplace culture. For us, the awards are a starting point, not an end point. We’re motivated to do even better in 2023.
