Northrop Grumman is taking action through OneTen to close the “opportunity gap” that prevents millions of Black Americans from having access to economic opportunities, gainful employment, education and training.

Alongside further companies, Northrop Grumman has pledged to train, hire, and advance one million Black Americans over the next 10 years into family-sustaining skilled jobs with opportunities for advancement.

With the support of OneTen, Northrop Grumman will also design educational and employment solutions to  better develop, retain, and advance diverse and underrepresented talent.

Supporting the African-American Task Group

This commitment to OneTen's strategy expands on Northrop Grumman's already established focus on advancing the careers of Black Americans.

For more than thirty years, Northrop Grumman has supported the African-American Task Group (AATG), the first diversity group established at Northrop Grumman. Members actively assist Northrop Grumman in creating an inclusive environment, with the purpose to maximize the value of the African-American community. The AATG enables Northrop Grumman’s success as a preferred employer of a diverse workforce.

Through the leadership of events, activities, networking, volunteering and more, the AATG provides a forum and mechanism for positively impacting business outcomes. The group's focus is on Professional/Leadership Development, Community Outreach, Networking/Mentorship, and Recruitment & Retention of the African American community.

The OneAATG Summit is the annual meeting of AATG chapters across Northrop Grumman. AATG members from across the company have gathered to look at heritage and forward towards the future. The Summit is designed to grow the technical, leadership and professional skills of Northrop Grumman employees as they hear from Northrop Grumman's CEO and further top executives across the enterprise, and engage in Q&A panels.
