Leanne Caret

TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 10, 2018 — Leanne Caret, president and CEO of Boeing‘s (NYSE: BA) defense, space and security business, has said she believes the challenges that women professionals encounter in the defense sector are more “aspirational” instead of institutional, as the industry sees a surge in women leaders at top contractors, ExecutiveBiz reported Jan. 3.

Caret highlighted in the Politico report published Jan. 2 the need to find talent across genders who can retain a “sense of self” as well as a “sense of humor” while being able to undertake their responsibilities.

Politico also cited Engility‘s (NYSE: EGL) Lynn Dugle, General Dynamics‘ (NYSE: GD) Phebe Novakovic, Lockheed Martin‘s (NYSE: LMT) Marillyn Hewson, Northrop Grumman‘s (NYSE: NOC) Kathy Warden, the Department of Defense’s Ellen Lord and the U.S. Air Force’s Heather Wilson — all Wash100 awardees — among the women holding key roles in the sector.
