Recipient - 2018

Catalyst is a global nonprofit working with some of the world’s most powerful CEOs and leading companies to help build workplaces that work for women.

Northrop Grumman—“Building the Best Culture, Leveraging the Power of Women.” In response to projections for increasing retirements and the lack of diversity in engineering disciplines, Northrop Grumman chose to position itself in 2010 for future growth by designing a comprehensive initiative. This effort—aiming to expand the company’s leadership pipeline with a specific requirement for diverse representation inclusive of women and people of color—has five strategic elements: leadership commitment, talent acquisition, work-life integration, employee development and building the future pipeline.
