Boeing is one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world, but the company has faced serious scrutiny in recent months.

Problems with the software that runs the plane to doors coming off mid-flight are hurting passenger confidence in Boeing products.

But this company insider is quick to point out that the problems with Boeing products are the company’s DEI policies that are putting air travelers at risk.

Boeing insider says policies are “ripping our society apart”

Academic Chris Rufo is one of the most well-known critics of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, also known as DEI.

Rufo recently spoke to an alleged insider from the airplane manufacturer Boeing to discuss how the company’s political ideologies are hurting one of the nation’s most important industries.

Boeing is one of the most recognizable manufacturers of airplanes, missiles, and satellites, but the company has recently been in the headlines regarding multiple incidents and quality control issues with some of its planes.

Alaska Airlines canceled all of its flights on Boeing 737-9 Max airplanes in January after a blowout left a gaping hole in one of the planes midair, forcing an emergency landing.

The alleged insider told City Journal that Boeing is “just a symptom of a much bigger problem: the failure of our elites. The purpose of the company is now ‘broad stakeholder value,’ including DEI and ESG. This was then embraced as a means to power, which further separated the workforce from the company. And it is ripping our society apart.”

ESG stands for Environment, Social, and Governance, which refers to businesses choosing to adhere to liberal causes in exchange for an investment, loans, or credit.

DEI stands for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, which means that companies, organizations, and institutions strictly adhere to liberal identity politics.

The Boeing insider said that the issue, “at its core,” is that “we have marginalization of the people who build stuff, the people who really work on these planes.”

He said the issue began after two 737s crashed in recent years, and one was due to an engineering failure that led to a “sweeping set of changes that caused huge turnover in talent.”

The anonymous insider said a bulk of Boeing’s new leadership consists of industry outsiders who live far away from the actual factories and that DEI is a dominant theme within the company.

“Status games rule every boardroom in the country. The DEI narrative is a very real thing, and, at Boeing, DEI got tied to the status game. It is the thing you embrace if you want to get ahead. It became a means to power,” he added.

DEI has major impacts

The insider noted that DEI can fundamentally change a company and that this ideology is “anti-excellence because it is ill-defined, but it became part of the culture and was tied to compensation.”

He also noted that it led to the “politicization of HR,” which is a “real problem in all companies.”

He added, “If you look at the bumper stickers at the factories in Renton or Everet, it’s a lot of conservative people who like building things—and conservative people do not like politics at work.”

The insider also mentioned that the “radicalization of HR doesn’t hurt tech businesses like it hurts manufacturing businesses.”

Most notably, the alleged insider said that DEI and ESG “is a form of cheap self-love that is being embraced by leaders. If you pay the tax to the DEI gods or the ESG gods and use coded language with your workforce, it absolves you of the hard work of really leading.”
