Northrop Grumman has been rated first in support of veterans; number two for support for people with disabilities; and number two for diversity councils.

Leading their sector

The global aerospace and defence company has been ranked 23rd on Diversity Inc’s annual list for the Top 50 Companies for Diversity. This sees them move from 29th place in 2017. Once again they’ve topped the charts in their sector.

“We consistently strive to foster an open and trusting environment that values diversity, is truly inclusive and creates strong engagement for all members of the Northrop Grumman team,” said Sandra Evers-Manly, Northrop Grumman vice president of global corporate responsibility, and president of the Northrop Grumman Foundation. “We have a broad and global mindset which focuses on multiple dimensions of diversity to include gender, age, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability status, veteran status and other characteristics.”

Leveraging the power of women

Northrop Grumman has also recently received other significant recognition for its diversity, inclusion and engagement initiatives, including a Catalyst Award for its “Build the Best Culture, Leverage the Power of Women” campaign which helped to accelerate the progress of women in the workplace.

Among other areas, the company was recognized for increasing the number of women on the executive team from 2010 to 2016 from 8.3 percent to 46 percent; and at the vice president level representation of women in that time period went up from 15.5 percent to 29 percent.
