Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion 

We believe that creating a work force and a workplace that values diversity and fosters inclusion is pivotal to promoting innovation and increasing productivity and profitability. Our goal is to continually support and nurture the large number of Northrop Grumman employees whose backgrounds, characteristics and perspectives are as diverse as the global communities in which we reside. We are committed to leveraging our organizational diversity through teamwork, cross-functional collaboration and joint ventures to help us meet and exceed our business goals and ensure our role as a leader in our industry.

Many people identify workforce diversity as an important factor when evaluating potential jobs — that's another reason why we strive to attract and retain the best employees by fostering a company culture of diversity and inclusion. From the start, we reach out to the best, most diverse talent from top colleges and the labor market. We also recruit military veterans for their commitment, ethical standards, skills, experiences and industry knowledge. Through Operation IMPACT, we hire and mentor our nation's wounded warriors.

Acquiring, engaging and developing and managing our people help us build the best culture and allow all employees to achieve their full potential. We are very proud of these efforts and count diversity and inclusion among Northrop Grumman's core values.

As Northrop Grumman continues its expansion into the global marketplace, it is imperative that we embrace and commit to a culture of inclusion that respects the cultural norms where we do business. This commitment helps us achieve and sustain our top performance goals. By leveraging diverse teams with different work styles, problem-solving techniques, ideas and local cultural norms, we create innovative solutions and superior products that maintain our leadership in technology worldwide.
