Boeing Native American Network
Our employee-led Boeing Native American Network (BNAN) builds awareness for the richness and diversity of Native American and Indigenous cultures across our team.
With an emphasis on career development and leadership, BNAN encourages STEM careers for Native American and Indigenous youth and provides training opportunities. The BNAN team expanded access to the Boeing DreamLearners initiative to Native American and Indigenous youth across the country, growing efforts by the Boeing South Carolina team to inspire students through STEM. BNAN volunteers led virtual career speaker and STEM activity sessions, helping over 1,000 students understand the value of STEM.
Across the community, BNAN members actively support the Boys & Girls Club – Native Services. Through mentoring, coaching and leadership training, the partnership helps to ensure diversity in our talent pool while improving representation in the STEM pipeline.
The group also connects hundreds of employees across the company who are passionate about Native American and Indigenous culture. BNAN members are actively educating the general public about traditions and cultures and raising awareness of the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present.
