Corporate Social Responsibility
I was part of the GCC challenge - where a team of 7 participants will carry pedometers and track their steps throughout a 100 day period, and compete with other teams from countries all around the world. Lockheed also provides support for its employees through a program provided by HR.

Diversity
The two graduates from this year were myself (male), and a female. There is a level of respect that is maintained in the office around her and every other employee, so I do not see any discrimination in any form there.
