RTX's nine employee resource groups are volunteer organizations that help drive our company's inclusive culture and create positive change. That focus on inclusion is reflected in the structure of the organizations themselves. Each group is led by a voluntary employee board with leaders and executive sponsors from across our global enterprise. Employees are encouraged to join any ERG they wish, whether as a member with a shared affinity, or as an ally.
The ERGs give voice to the diverse communities that make up our workforce. As the heartbeat of our employee population, they represent what we stand for, who we are and who we strive to become. A strong ERG community improves the employee experience, promotes professional development and cultivates a diverse talent pipeline of leaders with global experience and an inclusive mindset. All of this helps drive innovation and success in our businesses.
“You truly get out what you put in. The more you do, the more people you meet, you can naturally find networking opportunities. You never know who you might end up working with. It only takes one connection sometimes to find your dream job.”
Alexander Wolfgang Schneider
Global Board Chair RTX NXGEN
“We have a common vision. We want to make sure all of our members work in an environment where they feel respected and can reach their full potential. It’s also strength in numbers. As one ERG, you can do so much – but as nine, you can do so much more.”
Global Board Chair RTX ASPIRES
“A big part of being in the ERGs is the coaching and mentoring we offer. Our members can be more effective and feel like they’re making progress by getting help from folks that share their background and have lived through the same challenges.”
