Women at Northrop Grumman thrive in their careers and the company is very committed to supporting their careers in defence.

A number of talented finalists have been selected from Northrop Grumman for the prestigious Women in Defence Awards. The individuals and team finalists demonstrate extraordinary talent and achievements within the defence sector.

Women in Defence UK, who manage the awards, is a network that aims to encourage women to succeed authentically, share experiences, forge networks and increase the number of women joining the defence sector.

Read about the Northrop Grumman finalists and their relevant award nominations.

Northrop Grumman's Natalie Salem, finalist, Promotion of Gender Balance Award

This award recognises an individual who has promoted gender balance in their organisation to create a positive effect. The judges look for examples of where an individual has made a positive change within their organisation through the promotion of gender balance. This could be through an assignment, or more generally within the workplace (the individual’s role does not have to specifically relate to diversity and inclusion). 

​Northrop Grumman's Maggie O'Connell, finalist, Unsung Heroines Award

This award is to celebrate those women who, on an enduring basis, have improved the ‘lot' of people in defence, essential to an organisation's output but never seeking recognition for what they do. The judges look for examples of women who work tirelessly and loyally, perhaps over many years; often the mainstay of a business unit, team or group; encouraging others with a kind or good word; or being the cheerful backbone of an organisation; essential to its output and always willing to go the extra mile to support others; never seeking recognition for themselves for what they contribute. 

Northrop Grumman's Rapid Mission Response, shortlisted, Inclusive Teamwork Award 

This award recognises where a team has demonstrated inclusive working, and where all team members have had a voice and been able to contribute, leading to a successful outcome with tangible organisational benefit. Thus, the judges look for examples of commitment to inclusive teamwork and the tangible organisational benefits that result from that inclusion.
