As teammates, we can create a more respectful and inclusive world
During Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we celebrate the ingenuity, innovation and leadership of our Asian and Pacific Islander teammates. Since 1916, when Boeing hired its first aeronautical engineer, Wong Tsoo, a Chinese innovator who helped design Boeing’s first production airplane, Asians and Pacific Islanders have continued to revolutionize and propel our company — and aerospace — forward.
We continue to acknowledge that this community faces increased xenophobia, discrimination and violence in the wake of COVID-19. There is no place for racism in our society, and we do not tolerate it at Boeing. We extend our support to all those who have experienced the pain and fear of discrimination — and we step forward together, as allies, to speak out against it. To demonstrate further commitment to the AAPI community, since 2021, Boeing has donated $1.6 million to organizations working to combat anti-Asian hate, advance appreciation for Asian American Pacific Islander history and culture, fund leadership development programs and more.

During Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and year-round, we empower all teammates to stand together against hate to build a brighter world.
