Thurgood Marshall College Fund partnership renewal
In an effort to continue building out the talent pipeline, Boeing announced an $8 million, multi-year expanded partnership with Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) that will include a new fast-track hiring program to supply technical talent for open positions at Boeing locations in close geographic proximity to HBCUs. The partnership, which builds on an initial $6 million investment in 2018, will also support campus recruitment initiatives, career immersion activities, TMCF Leadership Institute programming and student scholarships at HBCUs through 2026.
“There aren’t a lot of companies that will invest in you for three years, but Boeing does,” said Jaida West, an inaugural TMCF Scholar who is now part of the Boeing Career Foundations Program. “I think the biggest benefit is the professional development. I was encouraged to push my boundaries and take opportunities outside my comfort zone.”
“This program has been one of my greatest opportunities,” said Heaven Guerin, who completed two Boeing internships prior to being hired full time in 2021. “We not only get tools and resources, but we are empowered to make an impact at the company.”
