Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are a key part of Northrop Grumman’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, leaning in on diversity recruiting, employment branding and community relationships, as well as creating programming, networking, and development for members. Across our company, more than 28,000 employees come together in 14 ERGs with 280 chapters. And while their interests may vary, their goal is one: to offer a voice to each and every member of our Northrop Grumman team.

Expand your community, stay connected and meet people across the company.  Join an Employee Resource Group (ERG) for networking, community outreach, professional and personal development, and recruiting. Learn more.

Veteran Resources

Northrop Grumman was named the number one company for veterans by Diversity Inc. and U.S. Veterans magazine. Veterans make up approximately 20% of our workforce and more than 1,600 are reservists.  We are committed to recognizing and supporting active duty, Reserves, National Guard, and veteran employees. There are many resources, tools, and opportunities specifically for veterans. To learn more please visit the veteran resource page.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

We leverage our diverse and inclusive workforce to achieve superior business results. Our mission is to expand diversity, equity, and inclusion through a developed and engaged global workforce and workplace by building leadership capability and organizational capacity. Learn More.

Small Acts is a program that offers resources to make it easier to engage with colleagues. When done with honesty and integrity, these small acts have the power to create inclusive relationships – characterized by mutual respect, acceptance, and support of each other’s success. 

Northrop Grumman Foundation’s Social Justice Campaign supports social justice, unity, and equality. Real change starts with understanding, and to achieve that we need to listen and be open to having tough conversations. We launched a Unity & Social Justice Page with resources to help and encourage employees to engage with each other.

If you are looking for additional support, please reach out to others, join the Employee Resource Groups, and leverage the NGCare Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through ComPsych available to you and your family.

Volunteering is a great way to meet and network with other employees, team build, and develop leadership skills. In addition, employees can support their favorite nonprofits and schools through charitable giving.
