On January 1, Girls Inc. Board member Michele Evans passed away after a valiant battle with cancer. An exemplary leader, wife, mother, daughter, and friend, Michele devoted 34 years of service to Lockheed Martin, most recently serving as executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. Michele joined the Girls Inc. Board in November, 2019, and right away became a dedicated champion and force for good in the Girls Inc. network.
Michele was passionate about the Girls Inc. mission to inspire girls to embrace new worlds of possibility, including STEM. She was actively involved in Lockheed Martin’s diversity and inclusion initiatives, serving as the executive sponsor for the Women’s Impact Network and Leadership Forum. She was a stalwart in the defense and aeronautics industry, shattering the glass ceiling, mentoring hundreds across the globe, and leading by example.
We have lost a good friend and passionate ally. Michele will be remembered and missed.
Funeral services will be live-streamed via this link on Thursday, January 7 at 10:00 a.m. Condolences may be made to Michele’s family through the site as well.
