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.

We are very proud of these efforts. We hope you will find the information on this Web site useful and informative, and gain a better understanding of why diversity and inclusion are part of Northrop Grumman’s core values.


Cross Cultural Resources

As the company expands its global footprint, 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. Leveraging diverse teams with different work styles, problem solving techniques, ideas and local cultural norms, we can create innovative solutions and superior products that maintain our leadership in technology worldwide.

GlobeSmart is a cross cultural competency resource available to all employees. This tool covers over 90 countries and helps expatriates and business travelers increase their awareness and understanding of local business skills, customs, culture, traveling details, names, phrases and much more. Also included in this valuable resource is a self-assessment on individual work styles. Knowing how to adapt to different work styles and influence key relationships with customers and colleagues is vital.
