	WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – Northrop Grumman Corporation

	"To stand before you and accept this award for Northrop Grumman
Corporation is such a privilege," said Swinson. "Over my career I have
seen Northrop Grumman foster an inclusive working environment, and I
have listened to our leaders passionately speak on the importance of
diversity. For me, it has instilled loyalty, trust and appreciation."

	AATG is one of nine employee resource groups on the Navigation
Systems Division's Woodland Hills campus. The employee resource groups
provide opportunities for professional development and networking in
addition to community outreach opportunities for Northrop Grumman

	"We are honored to receive the Centennial Roy Wilkins Award,"
said Jim Myers, sector vice president and general manager of Northrop
Grumman's Navigation Systems Division. "We not only wish to thank the
San Fernando Valley Chapter of the NAACP for this recognition, but also
send our congratulations to the NAACP on its 100 Year Centennial and
thank this great organization for its valuable work and legacy of
leadership in social justice and equal rights for all."
