FORT MEADE, Md. — The National Security Agency (NSA) has been named Government Organization of the Year 2022 by the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE). This award recognizes the NSA’s work to advance the fields of science and engineering, as well as its contributions to diversity, inclusion, and advocacy for diverse populations.
“We are focused on building and sustaining a culture of inclusion,” said NSA Chief of Staff Marlisa Smith. “Every employee has the opportunity to have a positive impact in their workplace.”
The NSA has a strong tradition of employing dedicated, highly skilled individuals who are deeply committed to maintaining the nation’s security. The critical thinking needed to achieve our strategic goals depends on a diverse workforce, differing viewpoints and a fully inclusive environment.
As a combat support agency, the NSA provides critical intelligence and cybersecurity expertise to secure the warfighter at home and in theater. This mission is supported by STEM employees in our signals intelligence and cybersecurity organizations. Together, NSA analysts, linguists, engineers, and researchers use their expertise to ensure the security of critical U.S. and allied communications and networks, and provide technical support to other government agencies.
The NSA understands that success occurs when we draw on a diversity of skills and embrace the wide range of experiences and perspectives. We enrich ourselves and our mission by working together, not in spite of our differences, but because of them.
