Fostering Diversity Throughout Textron
Textron promotes an inclusive environment where our employees are respected, have opportunities to grow professionally and can contribute fully to our common goals, regardless of differences.
We value the different perspectives our employees bring to Textron. That's why we support Employee Network Groups (ENGs) that enrich the lives of group members and fellow employees across our business units.
