Northrop Grumman is Committed to 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.
Diversity and Inclusion Programs
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are a key part of Northrop Grumman’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. Our ERGs allow members to develop and build leadership skills, raise awareness, educate others and contribute to communities. These groups include a variety of focus areas including those supporting African Americans, Asian Pacific Islanders, Hispanics, Native Americans, women, people with disabilities, veterans, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees, young professionals, parents, and environmentalists.
Northrop Grumman honors our company’s diversity by celebrating nationally recognized heritage months, e.g., Black History Month (February), Women’s History Month (March), Asian/ Pacific Islander American Heritage Month (May), LGBT Pride Month (June), Hispanic Heritage Month (mid-September to mid-October), National Disability Employment Awareness Month (October), and Native American Heritage Month (November).
It is a time where we recognize, and acknowledge the contributions of these groups to our American culture and society as we do with St. Patrick’s Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, and others.

Message from our Vice President Corporate Responsibility
Vice President, Global Corporate Responsibility
I have been at Northrop Grumman since I was 22 years old. I started as a summer hire during my junior year in college. Over the years I have seen the company grow and change through a series of acquisitions and business expansions. Throughout the years our commitment and appreciation of our diversity has continued to grow and now is one of our CEOs top five goals for the company. We know that our diversity is a strength that provides us a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
We are committed to building, sustaining and leveraging the diversity each of us bring to Northrop Grumman. We are also committed to ensuring we have an inclusive workplace where everyone is valued for his or her ideas, experiences and contributions. We do this through our diversity programs and initiatives, community involvement, alliances and recruiting of diverse talent. Our efforts have been recognized both at the local and national level. I am very proud of that.
