Cultural Diversity and Inclusiveness

At Aerospace, we believe that we can only fulfill our goals—and those of our customers—by securing a diverse and inclusive workforce, and an environment that will nurture the best ideas and generate the most novel innovations.

A steadfast dedication to maintaining an environment of tolerance, diversity, and inclusion is the bedrock of our corporate endeavors. Mission assurance and building the space enterprise are blind to the walls of those who would erect them based on race, gender, religion, national origin, sexual identity, and sexual orientation.

Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity (DIEO)

Aerospace’s DIEO office advises management and employees on diversity and inclusion best practices, and ensures Aerospace effectively practices Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action. Its mission is to assist the corporation in attracting, employing, developing, and retaining diverse talent while ensuring that every employee receives access to a level playing field regarding all personnel practices and conditions of employment.

Executive Diversity Council (EDC)

Chaired by Aerospace President and CEO Steve Isakowitz, the Aerospace Executive Diversity Council (EDC) acts as the governing body for the company’s diversity and inclusion strategy, determines diversity and inclusion goals and ensures they are integrated into our business and people practices, and is accountable for outcomes and progress. The EDC champions initiatives and programs that will advance the company’s diversity and inclusion strategy and position Aerospace as the premier career destination for diverse STEM talent.

Aerospace Diversity Action Committee (ADAC)

ADAC is comprised of management appointees and officers of eight employee resource groups representing African-American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian-Pacific American, Latino/Hispanic, disabled, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender, military veterans, and women employees.

ADAC is responsible for reviewing, advising, and making recommendations to the DIEO office and the EDC regarding programs, policies, practices, goals, and other workplace-related diversity and inclusion issues. It also provides the representatives of our diverse corporate population the opportunity to discuss and develop relevant activities and serves as a valuable mechanism for broadening communication among the resource groups, providing a forum for input on issues of concern to employees and the corporation.

Employee Resource Groups

Diversity exists any time different groups come together with common interests. Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) have long been established at The Aerospace Corporation to further the company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. The ERG’s provide employees an opportunity to connect with coworkers who have similar values of supporting and encouraging diversity. Employees can also choose to serve in local or national leadership roles.

All Aerospace employees working in organizations with technical responsibilities are required to apply for and maintain at least a Secret clearance.  U.S. citizenship is required for those positions.

 

Equal Opportunity Commitment

The Aerospace Corporation is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. We believe that a diverse workforce creates an environment in which unique ideas are developed and differing perspectives are valued, producing superior customer solutions. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, age, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, color, religion, genetic information, marital status, ancestry, national origin, protected veteran status, physical disability, medical condition, mental disability, or disability status and any other characteristic protected by state or federal law.
