Since June of last year, aerospace company Boeing has fired 65 employees and disciplined 53 others over behavior described as racist, discriminatory and hateful, according to a new company report on diversity.
The data follows a "zero tolerance" policy that CEO Dave Calhoun implemented following the May 2020 murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Q13 FOX of Seattle reported.
The policy includes a goal of raising the number of Black employees at the company by 20%, according to Q13 FOX. Blacks currently account for 6.4% of staffers at Boeing.

"There is no place for hate within our company, and we will keep expecting the best from everyone in their interactions with one another," Calhoun said, according to Q13 FOX.
