FROM THE COMPANY
The company strives to provide an environment where all are seen, heard, valued and respected. Building that culture starts at the very top, with our CEO chairing a Diversity & Inclusion council of the company's top executives, who also serve as sponsors of the company's nine Business Resource Groups (BRGs). These sponsors provide strategic oversight, serve as advocates and leverage BRG leadership for emerging talent pipeline, ensuring a direct link to successful business results.
Boeing offers many ways for people to achieve their potential. Employees lead over 120 Business Resource Group chapters and 40 Diversity Councils. External technical affiliations enable Boeing people to showcase their achievements and connect with experts in and outside the company. An annual Diversity & Inclusion summit draws hundreds of people from across the global enterprise to learn from company leaders and outside experts and gain new skills and abilities to advance diversity and inclusion on their work teams and in the community.
Further, Boeing has hosted a series of internal forums across the globe aimed at empowering women, to spur dialogue, attract talent and deliver strategies for personal and professional development. To date, more than 1,200 women leaders, employees and male allies have convened to discuss women's leadership, gender diversity, work-life effectiveness – and career success. In addition, we are developing strategy focused on multicultural women to address the unique challenges they face in the workplace, and we are hosting the company's second annual global women's leadership conference in the fall of 2018. Other key components of the company's larger strategy to attract, develop and retain the best, diverse talent and teams includes a special focus on veterans, individuals with disabilities and LGBTQ communities.
