Boeing: Women Make Us Better

Originally published on boeing.com.

Our Commitment to Women In STEM

At Boeing, we are dedicated to addressing the need for more women to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Women have played an important role in the history of Boeing.  At the company’s inception in 1916, founder William Boeing hired seamstress Rosie Farrar to stitch together linen wings for the early B & W seaplanes. Just two years later, Helen Holcombe joined Boeing as the first woman in the engineering department.

In 2019, Boeing partnered with more than 236 STEM organizations and contributed nearly $30 million toward community initiatives that helped inspire an estimated 1 million young women in STEM.

Over the past eight years, Boeing and The Boeing Charitable Trust have contributed $186 million toward community initiatives that have had a positive impact on 6 million young women and girls around the world.
