We Go Further Together

Creating the world’s most innovative aerospace products and services requires a diverse and inclusive global team. We know that every teammate brings something uniquely valuable to Boeing, and that we can make the world better, together.

As we celebrate AAPI month, we remember the first engineer Boeing hired in 1916. Wong Tsoo, an MIT graduate and a Chinese innovator, helped design Boeing’s first production airplane. Since then, Asian and Pacific Islander employees have continued to propel us forward. Today, Pan-Asian Americans represent the largest racial minority at Boeing in the United States. We are continuing our efforts to accelerate representation gains for all Asian and Pacific Islander (API) teammates at every level across Boeing with a specific focus on leadership roles.

Join us in creating a more inclusive future.

The Steps We're Taking

We’ve set clear aspirations that we’re striving to achieve by 2025.

  • Increase the Black representation rate in the U.S. by 20%.
  • Achieve parity in retention rates of all groups.
  • Close representation gaps for historically underrepresented groups.
  • Advance common understanding, shared experiences and mutual respect.
  • Report diversity metrics and progress annually.
  • Eliminate any statistically significant differences between the workplace experiences of underrepresented and at-representation groups.

Some of the actions we’re taking to get there.

  • Requiring diverse slates and interview teams at executive levels, and requiring hiring managers to take bias mitigation training.
  • Holding ourselves accountable to equal pay for equal work by conducting regular compensation reviews.
  • Analyzing more than 1,200 unique job groups to identify and close representation gaps.
  • Increasing diversity in our talent pool through continued partnerships with organizations that inspire young women in STEM, and with educational institutions that serve underrepresented racial minorities.
  • Advancing equity and social justice in our communities by investing – at minimum – $25 million in nonprofit organizations that advance equity by 2023.
  • Talking openly about race and racism at every level of our company.
