Inspire, Empower, and Engage
At Raytheon, we embrace our responsibility to give back to the communities in which we live. We believe in empowering veterans through continuing education. And we believe that if we inspire young students to develop and sustain an interest in math and science, we will encourage their pursuit of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) studies and careers — thereby preserving our country’s leadership status in technology and innovation. Our focused community relations efforts contributed to Raytheon’s recognition by The Civic 50 as one of 2012’s most community-minded companies.
Through partnerships, empowerment programs and employee volunteering efforts, Raytheon takes a strategic approach to corporate citizenship.
