Northrop Grumman Women's International Network (NGWIN) is an Employee Resource Group connects employees domestically and internationally by providing forums for connection, knowledge sharing, and community outreach, to produce opportunities for advancement.

“Developing infrastructure in space to allow humanity to better and more efficiently explore the universe is my passion," says Sumayya Abukhalil, Northrop Grumman Systems Engineer.

Taking part in a variety of events for women

Northrop Grumman Women's International Network attends, hosts and sponsors a number of events throughout the year to meet talent. These include Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and Grace Hopper.

The NGWIN Summit is the annual meeting of NGWIN employees across Northrop Grumman. For several years, NGWIN members from across the company have gathered for professional and technology development opportunities, and to discuss ongoing strategies for supporting women in the workplace.

 Every other year for the past 20 years, women from across Northrop Grumman come together to participate in the Northrop Grumman Women’s Conference. The purpose of the conference is to enhance the leadership potential of women within the company by providing opportunities for leadership and networking. Nearly 3,000 women have participated in the event and hear from leadership, outside speakers, attend panel discussions, participate in networking activities and give back to the local community.
