Strengthening Our Communities

LMI gives back. This is not a hollow phrase but a moral imperative. The corporate social responsibility exhibited by employees and leadership resonates throughout the entire company.

In 2021, LMI supported nearly a dozen non-profit organizations, giving over $30,000 on behalf of our employees to non-profits focused on youth leadership development, mission-focused service to our veterans and military families, and community-based innovation for solving local challenges. Organizations supported by LMI included Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia (NOVA), Fisher House, United Service Organization (USO)-Metro, Feeding America, and Howard University.

Strengthening Our Communities

Beyond financial support, LMIers dedicated their personal time and energy to these deserving organizations. LMIers at all levels worked with Girls on the Run of NOVA, becoming running coaches for adolescent girls and creating valuable mentorship opportunities for both parties. Fisher House support is near and dear to the many veterans at LMI. Empowering families of injured service members to be by their loved one’s side is essential to the morale of our armed forces. USO-Metro is another organization that employees and leadership felt fortunate to help. LMIers provided significant personal and professional mentorship during the quarterly transition panels as part of USO-Metro's Project Next S.T.E.P. (Service Member Transition Program) for service members approaching the end of their service.

LMI continued to support long-standing non-profit advocacy organizations like the Association of the U.S. Army, the Potomac Officers Club, the Navy League, and the Marine Corps Association but extended its reach and impact in several key professional and advocacy organizations throughout 2021. LMI helped establish important capabilities at emerging organizations, such as sponsoring the Space Force Center of Excellence with the Space Force Association. Many senior LMI leaders expanded their service to these organizations:

  • Pat Tamburrino, vice president, logistics service line, was appointed to the strategic board for the National Defense University (NDU) Foundation. The NDU Foundation supports the NDU and encourages involvement from a diverse cast of leadership across government and civilian sectors.
  • Dr. Sharon Hays, chief technology officer (CTO), was selected as the Chair of the CTO Council at WashingtonExec. Her background in policy that bloomed from her assignments at the White House is pivotal for a time when science and technology must be more agile than ever.

“I am fortunate to have the role of overseeing LMI’s philanthropic initiatives because it positions me to make a difference through our financial and volunteer efforts in support of our most vulnerable communities.”

— Karen Britton vice president, marketing & communications and chief digital officer

  • Karen Britton, vice president of marketing & communications and chief digital officer, is passionate about leading from the front and giving back. Her being named as one of the 2021–2022 board of directors for the American Red Cross of the National Capital Area falls within the values that she exhibits at work and at home.
  • Chrissy Cocrane, vice president of management advisory services, also has a desire to give back and was selected to be an advisory council member for the George C. Marshall International Center. This nonprofit organization promotes principled qualities for the leaders of today and the future, based on George C. Marshall’s own leadership style.
  • Scott Recinos, vice president, homeland security market, became a member of the Board of Directors, Homeland Security & Business Defense Council in October 2021.

LMI MentorConnect™, launched in July 2021, has paired nearly 100 mentors and mentees to foster our learning culture, promote employee engagement, encourage knowledge sharing, and honor our value of leadership. Early feedback has been positive, with one employee noting, “I am thrilled to use my life and professional experience to help someone. This is an incredibly rewarding experience.”
