On November 16, 2011, Costello and Alexander traveled to The Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo, California, to present the Being a Difference Award to Ms. Malissia Clinton, Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary. The award presentation was made in conjunction with a company-wide Managers’ Meeting.
Aerospace used the opportunity to create an internal campaign encouraging all employees to continue promoting ethical behavior and “Being a Difference” throughout the company. With approximately 4,000 employees in 11 states, Aerospace broadened the scope of influence of the Being a Difference Award.
“Ms. Clinton has made a significant difference to the ethical culture of our corporation and is extremely deserving of the annual Being a Difference Award,” said Dr. Wanda Austin, President and CEO of The Aerospace Corporation. “She has provided exemplary leadership from the top down and demonstrates exceedingly high ethical principles in both her personal conduct and in the standards she sets for the organization. She works tirelessly to be an ethical example every day, and her positive can-do attitude is contagious to everyone.”
