FROM THE COMPANY
Diversity, inclusion and respect are foundational values of Boeing, and they are a critical component of our business strategy. We strive every day to live our values, which guide our aspirations to connect, protect, explore and inspire the world through aerospace innovation.
The company’s commitment to diversity means providing a robust global diversity and inclusion strategy and a work environment that is safe, welcoming, respectful, fair, ethical and inspiring, with abundant opportunities for professional and personal development.
Our commitment to inclusion and diversity starts at the top with our Executive Diversity Council, which is led by our Chairman, President and CEO and is comprised of Boeing’s C-suite leaders and Chief Diversity Officer. This Council develops company strategy for diversity & inclusion, strengthens the pipeline for inclusive leadership, regularly evaluates progress, and drives accountability for our success throughout our enterprise.
We also know that leaders alone do not make a company’s culture. Indeed, every employee has a responsibility to uphold our values of diversity, inclusion and respect.
Thousands of employees participate in our nine business resource groups, which help connect our business with our diverse employee populations and the communities we serve. Boeing’s Business Resource Groups help fulfill Boeing’s commitment to advance inclusion and diversity. Diversity Councils are an additional way that Boeing’s employees operationalize diversity, inclusion, and engagement. The councils provide learning and leadership opportunities, drive innovation, increase communication, improve morale and engagement, and help implement the organization’s diversity plan.
Chairman, President and CEO
“The most important investment Boeing makes is in our people. As we drive more diversity, inclusion and mutual respect throughout the company, it makes us stronger. These core values help drive innovation so we can better serve our customers and the communities where we live and work.”
Vice President, Global Diversity & Inclusion
“At Boeing, we know our success relies on our ability to honor and celebrate the best in everyone, from every background and country, every race, every gender identity and orientation, disability, and military status. Diversity and inclusion aren’t nice to have, they’re a business necessity.”
