Innovation Driven by Diversity

"Diversity is at the heart of all we do at Raytheon. We embrace diversity and diverse opinions; we treat people with dignity and respect to support our inclusive culture. This allows us to retain and attract the world-class talent and supplier base we need to develop the innovative solutions our global customers depend on. We view our diversity as a competitive advantage as a key enabler of our growth."

Thomas A. Kennedy
Raytheon Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Our vision: A richly diverse and culturally competent employee population that utilizes diversity and inclusion to enable global growth, competitiveness and enterprise collaboration.

At Raytheon, we work every day to foster an inclusive workplace that embraces all our differences—like race, gender, disability or sexual orientation—as opportunities to expand global growth, build competitive advantage and drive enterprise collaboration. Raytheon offered same sex domestic partner benefits prior to the Supreme Court ruling to legalize same sex marriage and we were the first in our sector to achieve a perfect rating on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index.

Diversity is an integral part of our business model and philosophy, particularly as we continue to grow internationally. Our primary focus areas are:

  • Influencing the evolution of company thinking through education and development
  • Shaping the global mindset of our current and future leaders
  • Developing focused initiatives to ensure that our global workforce accurately represents the markets where we operate

We are also one of the first companies in our industry to establish a strong portfolio of employee resource groups. These employee-driven organizations foster an inclusive, engaged culture; drive business growth and innovation; help attract, retain and develop employees; and engage meaningfully with their local communities.
