Celebrating Pride Throughout the A&D Industry

The aerospace and defense industry continues to innovate the way our world connects through new technologies. But these connections run much deeper than just the tech powering our world. A&D is working to create a more inclusive and welcoming environment for our employees.

Particularly during Pride month and the events of 2020, we’re proud to recognize the 30 AIA member companies who achieved a perfect score of 100 in the Human Rights Campaign’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index.

We applaud the following companies for their commitment to providing equal opportunities in the workplace and fostering a space that promotes inclusion and diversity. The recognition of these values as a strength in the workplace, and taking the steps to achieve them, is a testament to the industry’s advancements.

While we are proud of the steps these members have taken thus far, we know there is still a long way to go to achieve complete inclusiveness. And this isn’t a problem we can fix by just focusing on our industry. We must all be a part of the solution for the larger and underlying issues. We must all commit to fighting against systemic biases concerning race, gender, sexual orientation, and other biases everywhere. Only then can our industry be satisfied with the work we our doing and truly access the best workforce this country has to offer.
