Spirit AeroSystems, which makes composite parts for aerospace, has been named a 2017 DiversityInc Noteworthy Company.

The DiversityInc Top 50 list, issued yearly since 2001, recognizes the top companies in the US for diversity and inclusion management. These companies excel in such areas as hiring, retaining and promoting women, minorities, people with disabilities, LGBT and veterans.

 ‘Spirit continues to invest in creating an all-inclusive environment, where employees of all backgrounds and experiences are given the opportunity to make positive contributions to the company and excel in their chosen fields,’ claimed Coleen Tabor, Spirit's director of talent and diversity.

‘There are simply not enough qualified people to hire. A company's ability to find the best and brightest, advance and retain them equitably is a decisive competitive advantage,’ said Luke Visconti, founder and CEO of DiversityInc.
