Diversity Team

The Diversity professionals and specialists at Boeing cover Affirmative Action, Cultural Diversity and Inclusion, and Equal Employment Opportunity. The team works to strengthen an environment that values and leverages multiple perspectives, experiences and capabilities by driving the integration of diversity, equity and fairness into all practices and processes. This inclusive and engaging environment, in turn, helps employees achieve their full potential.

Joyce E. Tucker is the vice president of Global Diversity & Employee Rights for The Boeing Company. In that role, she is responsible for overseeing implementation of innovative initiatives and compliance across the company's Affirmative Action, Cultural Diversity and Inclusion, and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) programs.

Tucker is a nationally recognized expert in EEO and affirmative action in both the public and private sectors. Former President George H. W. Bush appointed Tucker as Commissioner of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), where she served from 1990 to 1996. Prior to leading the EEOC, she was Illinois' first Department of Human Rights director and served for ten years in the Illinois Governor's cabinet.

In 2001, Tucker was appointed by President George W. Bush to serve on the White House Initiative Advisory Board for Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

I didn't limit myself to a mentor who looked or acted like me. I wanted a leader, like Rex, who could help me bring out my best in a challenging environment."
