Leidos recognizes that people are the foundation of everything that we do. We utilize strong workforce data analytics and participate in benchmarking studies to understand industry trends, meet our people goals, and continuously develop practices that deliver results for our customers as well as attract, develop and retain our employees.
We publish our workforce data demographic data—by race and ethnicity, education, veteran status, age and gender, on a yearly basis. Education, veterans status, and gender are provided for our international workforce and ethnicity is provided for our US workforce. In 2020 we began publishing our EEO Reports. This commitment to greater transparency holds us accountable year over year and is critical to understanding our progress against our 2030 Next Level Leidos ESG Goals.

UK Gender Pay Gap
In April of 2021, our UK operations published the 2021 Gender Pay Gap report as required by the UK Government. Appreciating that the 2020/2021 operating period has been a challenge to all industries due to the global pandemic, we are pleased to state that in 2021, female employees represented 36% of all promotions, further proof of our commitment to creating a level playing field for our diverse community of people. In 2021, Leidos improved its relative position through a reduction in both the mean and median figures by 2.23% and 3.60%. These reductions give us clear indication that the initiatives we have in place are having an impact in our UK operations.
As of December 31, 2021, we employed approximately 43,000 full and part-time employees of whom approximately 39,000 are located in the United States and the remainder of which are located in more than 39 countries worldwide. Of that population, over 90% are in the U.S., representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and territories. The largest concentration of our employees is in the National Capital Region, with about 11,709 employees in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area.
Since this map does not display Washington, D.C. or U.S. territories, 995 employees working in Washington, D.C. are mapped to Virginia, and employees working in U.S. territories appear in the International Map below.
Outside of the U.S., Leidos has employees in 43 countries, with the largest concentration of employees being in the United Kingdom and Australia.
