Northrop Grumman has joined the Warsaw Security Forum (WSF), a leading European platform devoted to transatlantic cooperation and focused on elaborating shared responses to common security challenges, to recognize women’s important contributions in leadership and global security.

"We must invest in the next generation of women leaders to join us - take them under our wings, and share experiences and challenges," says Christine Harbison, Vice President and General Manager. "When we add more women into the conversation, the more robust the outcomes will be."

The WSF annual conference, particpated in by Northrop Grumman, convenes over 1500 participants from 40 countries, among others heads of state, ministers, leading personalities of international and non-governmental organizations, high-ranking representatives from business, the media, academia, and civil society.
