Supporting Women within the Engineering Environment

Female reading from bookThe MDA recognizes the many roles women have played in engineering, technology, and science. We aim to maintain an environment where women are hired, advanced, recognized, and trained with the same opportunities as all other employees.

The Federal Women’s Program (FWP) is part of our Equal Opportunity Employment Special Emphasis Program. In addition to supporting a network of professional women at the MDA, FWP provides education opportunities for the MDA as a whole, as well as monthly celebrations.
