From The Company
For Raytheon Technologies, advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) is both a business and a social imperative. We are committed to meaningful and measurable DE&I efforts across our global workforce as the only way to build a world beyond the one we know today.
Our DE&I Pillars for Action focus on public policy advocacy, workforce diversity, community engagement and supplier diversity, to help advance underrepresented groups through accountable actions and to build a stronger business through diverse perspectives.
Similar to other critical business objectives, we are setting both short- and long-term goals to measure our progress and refine our strategies to advance Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This includes a 50/50 gender parity goal for leadership positions by 2030.
To drive accountability, we have incorporated DE&I objectives into our annual executive incentive program. With our scale and resources, we have the ability — and responsibility — to make an enduring impact on generations.
Recent accomplishments in 2021 include:
- Raytheon Technologies announced its $500 million Social Impact Initiative.
- SMASH and Raytheon Technologies announced their partnership to help students in underrepresented communities overcome barriers in pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers.
- Prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion. We have committed to greater spending with diverse suppliers, and to advocating for equity, social justice reform and economic policy.
- Attracting, developing and retaining world-class talent. By 2030, we aim to have gender parity and greater representation of people of color in our executive ranks.
Raytheon Technologies is honored to be recognized by DiversityInc. When we embrace diversity in all its forms, we fuel opportunities for our employees, customers, suppliers and communities. Our multi-year plan will create meaningful and measurable progress to advance Diversity, Equity and Inclusion across the company and beyond.
