A Partner's Experience

“I work in the Ethics organization and had the opportunity to share how Lockheed Martin approaches learning/development of skills to insure we provide an environment that supports employees bringing their best to the workplace. The teachers do this every day in the classroom. I believe that more collaboration in this area will result in a better environment for students and our future employees. It’s easy to talk, but it’s seeing it in action that counts.
