Boeing Takes Flight Toward Equality

Long-time aerospace giant and high scoring Corporate Equality Index company, Boeing announced, after public pressure, that it would grant pension survivor benefits for its same-sex married employees. The change in policy means that married same-sex couples will be treated no differently than their straight peers.

Born out of momentum following Washington State’s move towards marriage equality, this is a significant shift for a prominent Fortune 500 company.

An employee-launched petition, which garnered 79,000 signatures, prompted Boeing to reexamine their benefits offerings.

Peer pressure. It works. Make your voices heard for equality!
