Civic Engagement

Global Objectives

Theory of Change: If individuals assume leadership roles and/or engage in civic discourse within communities, then they will be better informed and take actions to benefit their community. This will result in cross-cultural communication and understanding of local, regional, and global cultures, perspectives and issues.

Program Goal: Increase public understanding and engagement in the processes and issues that affect our communities; develop current and future leaders to build better communities.

Local Strategies

Boeing invests in programs that:

  • Inform and educate citizens about relevant and timely topics affecting the Puget Sound area and/or prompt them to action and service; and
  • Advance regional adult leadership development to expand the pool of informed and effective leaders who are prepared to take action to resolve issues facing the region.
