Sandra Evers-Manly has been awarded the Society of Women Engineers’ prestigious President’s Award.

"We’re proud to have dedicated leadership who are supporting gender diversity and inclusion in engineering," said Northrop Grumman.

Diversity is a strength

Sandra has been working for Northrop Grumman since she 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," says Sandra.

Sandra grew up in Mississippi and is the first cousin of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers. His legendary activism inspired her from an early age to confront and address inequality wherever she saw it. Her contributions at Northrop Grumman have helped make the company a model of diversity in its industry. ​

Admired by colleagues

“She is our role model for helping to make this company a great place to work and simultaneously striving to be better than we are,” said a senior director at Northrop Grumman Technical. “She is the #1 champion for Employee Resource Groups and believes that it is the diversity of our people that makes the difference in our ability to be innovative and to meet the critical needs of our customers.”
