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

said Jim Myers, sector vice president and general manager of Northrop

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."
