NSA Receives 2022 Government Organization of the Year Award from SASE

FORT MEADE, Md. — The National Security Agency (NSA) has been named the 2022 Government Organization of the Year by the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE). This award recognizes NSA’s work to advance the fields of science and engineering, as well as its contributions to diversity, inclusion, and advocacy for various populations.

“We are focused on building and maintaining a culture of inclusion,” said NSA Chief of Staff Marlisa Smith. “Every employee is given the opportunity to have a positive impact in the workplace.”

NSA has a strong tradition of employing dedicated, highly qualified people who are deeply committed to maintaining the nation’s security. The critical thinking required to accomplish our strategic goals depends on a diverse workforce, divergent points of view, and a fully inclusive environment.

As a combat support agency, NSA provides critical intelligence and cybersecurity expertise to secure the warfighter at home and in theater. That mission is supported by STEM employees in both our signals intelligence and cybersecurity organizations. Together, NSA analysts, linguists, engineers, and researchers use their expertise to ensure the security of U.S. and allied communications and critical networks, and provide technical support to other government agencies.

NSA understands that success happens when we rely on a diversity of skills and embrace the vast range of experiences and perspectives. We enrich ourselves and our mission by working together, not in spite of our differences, but because of them.
