Diversity at Leidos

Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.

The company seems to hire people regardless of their background or any group-affiliation. If you're a good fit for the role, there's a good chance you'll be hired. I work with lots of people from diverse backgrounds.

Ethnically very diverse, IT departments are male dominated at about the same level as my university classes. Other departments, HR, management are gender diverse.

I believe they try to recruit as diversely as possible. There a quite a few women in management positions and there are flexible work options available. We celebrate cultural diversity.

Company obviously wants to emphasise its diversity, although this line of work might not attract that crowd very well. Not their fault per se, just the way it is.

There seems to be a diverse group of people in the company including women and ethnic minorities. I have not seen anyone from the LGBT community in the team I am working in, but it is a small team and I have not seen any tendencies that would reject them working here. I do not know a lot about the issues for recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, but I do not that one grad is currently on maternity leave.

I'm not aware of any specific programs or initiatives which target applicants from less privileged backgrounds in Australia.
