Diversity

Corporate Social Responsibility

Kathleen Rich-New of Clarity Works Consulting presented her Model of Human Behavior at a Florida Women in Aerospace event.

ATK is committed to providing equal employment opportunity to all applicants and employees. In keeping with this commitment, ATK recruits, hires, trains, and promotes into all job levels the most qualified individuals without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, disability, genetic information, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, citizenship status, marital status, military or veteran status, or any other legally protected characteristic.ATK takes affirmative action to ensure that all human resources policies and procedures concerning hiring, compensation, benefits, corrective action, layoffs, terminations, recall, educational reimbursement and company-sponsored training, social, and recreational activities are administered under the principles of equal opportunity. All managers and supervisors are responsible for implementing and enforcing these principles.

In addition, each location has an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Coordinator. ATK’s President and Chief Executive Officer and the company’s Senior Vice President Human Resources have ultimate responsibility for ATK’s compliance with affirmative action principles.

Accommodating Employees with Disabilities
In order to ensure the company is a rewarding workplace for all, ATK makes reasonable accommodations for the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability who is an applicant or an employee. The exception is when such accommodations would result in undue hardship or present a direct threat to others.

Promoting Diversity in Our Present and Future Workforce
ATK believes diversity plays an important role in the success of our company, and that the company and the nation will benefit from having a diverse and highly-educated workforce. To that end, ATK supports professional organizations including Women in Aerospace (WIA), Women in Defense (WID), and Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics. WIA is dedicated to expanding women’s opportunities for leadership and increasing their visibility in the aerospace community. Cultivating and supporting the advancement and recognition of women in all aspects of national security is the mission of WID. Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics conferences nurture girls’ interest in science and math courses to encourage them to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math. Since 2009, ATK is a top platinum level sponsor of WIA, along with other industry leaders such as Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. ATK employees have served as WIA Board Chair for the past two years.
