Building a Culture of Acceptance on a Foundation of Diversity
As an integral part of our overall business model, Raytheon works to achieve an inclusive culture through a variety of channels. Inside our walls and out, we’re seeking, embracing and promoting diversity as a core company value.
Diversity is something that is often viewed in too narrow a scope. Some see it as little more than a legal agreement. To achieve our goal of inclusivity, we must view it through a broader lens. The differences that define us as individuals go far beyond basic demographics like race, gender and age. Traits identified in our Diversity Wheel are all important pieces to the puzzle.
We use the Diversity Wheel to symbolize the notion of different qualities that make our culture unique and strong. How effective we are in living up to our diversity goals will determine how effective we are in fulfilling our mission of customer success — in other words, the more diverse our environment, the more creative our atmosphere and the more energized and productive we will be.
It is the policy of the Company to recruit, hire, train and promote for all job classifications without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, disability, or Vietnam era or other eligible veteran status, and to base all such employment decisions upon the individual’s qualifications and ability to perform the work assigned.
