The finest minds in the country working together and bringing their diverse voices to the table – that’s what Defining Possible means at Northrop Grumman. Their employees come from various backgrounds, bringing diversity in thought, niche skills and unique experiences. That diversity fosters innovation and creativity and enables Northrop Grumman to develop some of the most technically proficient products and services on land, at sea, in the air, in cyberspace and in space.
At Northrop Grumman, diversity is more than a buzzword – it was ranked 15th on Diversity Inc’s annual list for the Top 50 Companies for Diversity, ranking No. 2 for people with disabilities, No. 4 for veterans and employee resource groups (ERG) and recognized as a top company for LGBT employees.
But it’s not just about recognition. For employees, it’s about taking ownership and promoting diversity themselves.
ERGs bring together thousands of employees and provides benefits for ERG members and the company as a whole, spanning across different demographics. Throughout more than 260 locations, these groups support African Americans, Asian Pacific Islanders, Hispanics, Native Americans, women, people with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ+ employees, young professionals, parents, multiple generations, and remote employees. Every ERG is inclusive of all employees.
“One of them that I’m directly involved in is the ‘WEconnect’ program,” says Jessica Tateishi. “I have the opportunity to co-lead ‘WEconnect’ as a part of our unique strategy that focuses on helping females in technical roles throughout their career.”
At Northrop Grumman, they strive to build and retain the best team in the industry – one that is both diverse and inclusive. By seeking top, qualified minds from a diverse candidate pool, they remain agile, dynamic, and continue to help them reach their goals and keep our country safe.
The company is committed to fostering a culture of equal opportunity and inclusivity through progressive and proactive measures that the employees are involved in. Brian McKinney notes that, “It’s about us – it’s about redefining a new us.”
It’s about connecting and coming together with a common goal, using their varied histories and experiences to exponentially progress for a common mission. It is the company’s diverse minds collaborating that help them to define possible every day.
