Em­brac­ing Di­ver­sity and Defin­ing Pos­si­ble

-

“Achiev­ing our best cul­ture means un­der­stand­ing the ‘why’ be­hind what we do – where our or­ga­ni­za­tion is headed, why it is chang­ing, and why the changes are so im­por­tant to our em­ploy­ees, cus­tomers and the global com­mu­nity. We de­liver on our com­mit­ments with bold in­no­va­tion and op­er­a­tional ex­cel­lence, be­cause our mis­sion is your ex­pe­ri­ence.” Northrop Grum­man as­pires to cre­ate a work­place where every em­ployee is em­pow­ered to think dif­fer­ently and en­cour­ages fierce cu­rios­ity and a pi­o­neer­ing spirit. the com­pany’s com­mit­ment to in­clu­sion is re­flected in its di­verse work­force that em­braces peo­ple of color, women, veter­ans, peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and the LgBtQ com­mu­nity. di­ver­sity en­ables northrop grum­man to de­fine new pos­si­bil­i­ties every day by de­sign­ing, de­vel­op­ing, build­ing and sup­port­ing some of the world’s most ad­vanced sys­tems – from un­der­sea to outer space and cy­berspace. shawn Purvis knows what it takes to en­able this global en­ter­prise. As a leader in the tech­nol­ogy and en­gi­neer­ing field, she is an ac­tive voice and ad­vo­cate for oth­ers. Her team en­sures that 90,000 em­ploy­ees are equipped to drive northrop grum­man’s per­for­mance and pro­vide next-gen­er­a­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties around the world. the strong foun­da­tion that her team has built en­ables northrop grum­man to rapidly ad­dress cus­tomers’ needs and en­sure a se­cure and sta­ble en­vi­ron­ment in a world that is con­stantly evolv­ing. Along with driv­ing com­pany per­for­mance through in­no­va­tive tech­no­log­i­cal so­lu­tions and en­abling the mas­sive tech­nol­ogy in­fra­struc­ture to pro­tect the net­work, her team is also charged with lead­ing a dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion and ad­vanc­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion sys­tems that pro­mote agility and ef­fi­ciency. Em­brac­ing dis­rup­tive think­ing in the ef­fort to shape the fu­ture re­quires chang­ing how one works, thinks and learns. Purvis’ team is paving the way in driv­ing a trans­for­ma­tion that will re­de­fine the ap­proach to en­gi­neer­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing.
