Around the Table: Wells Fargo, Mckinstry, Microsoft, Boeing

Happy to share some recent announcements from some of our members:

Commitment to sustainability: Wells Fargo continues to direct funds toward sustainable products and services as part of its commitment to deploy $500 billion in sustainable financing by 2030. As part of its commitment to a healthy environment, McKinstry is partnering with the City of Tacoma to process biogas found in wastewater into a renewable fuel source.

Innovate for Inclusion: In their ongoing effort to increase transparency and accountability, Microsoft shared data from their Global Diversity and Inclusion Report highlighting the continuous year-after-year effort to increase representation across the workplace. “While always committed, we’re now unapologetic in the standards we’ve set and the behaviors we expect,” said Lindsay-Rae McIntyre, Chief Diversity Officer at Microsoft.

Supporting student success: Boeing is investing in a new student success center in the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture on WSU’s Pullman campus to provide 4,200 students access to mentoring, tutoring, advising, and career services.
