Posted 9 December 2016 · Add Comment

Northrop Grumman participated in this year's 'Arab Women in Leadership and Business' summit, which took place in Dubai.

The summit provides a key platform for global business and thought leaders to come together to champion diversity and inclusion on both a business and corporate level, and discuss the increasing role of female leadership within the region’s economy.

​The company is a silver sponsor this year, and was represented at the conference by Sandra Evers-Manly, vice president, Global Corporate Responsibility, as well as Walid Abukhaled, chief executive, Middle East Region, who discussed organisational responsibility in the empowerment of its female employees in his talk ‘Empowering Arab Women in Business Leadership: Roles of Organizations and Individuals’.

Abukhaled said: “In an industry that is often labelled as male-dominant, women are making outstanding progress in their careers. At Northrop Grumman, we have been very successful in attracting and retaining talented women within our workplace, with nearly 50 percent of our company’s senior leadership roles, now occupied by females. This is because, as a company, we take our commitment to gender equality, diversity and inclusion very seriously – a fact that is reinforced by our active presence at this conference.”
