Boeing Receives NCIV Corporate Citizen Diplomat Award

The Boeing Company was presented with the National Council for International Visitors’ (NCIV) Corporate Citizen Diplomat Award today at NCIV's 2012 National Meeting.

 
PRLog - Feb. 16, 2012 - WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Boeing Company was presented today with the National Council for International Visitors’ (NCIV) Corporate Citizen Diplomat Award. Tom Bell, vice president of Strategy & Business Capture for Boeing Defense, Space & Security, accepted the award on Boeing’s behalf during a special luncheon ceremony at NCIV’s 2012 National Meeting.

The award recognizes Boeing’s generous support of NCIV and its member organizations, including financial contributions, Board participation, meetings with international visitors, and sponsorship of community programs on diplomacy. Boeing was nominated for the award by NCIV members World Chicago, the World Affairs Council of Seattle, and the World Affairs Council of St. Louis.

In accepting the award, Mr. Bell said that “when people have a shared mission with another party – whether it’s diplomatic in nature or, in our business, supporting commercial airplane and military customers – we are more likely to find common ground, solutions, and a way forward when we are able to meet in person. Boeing’s global workforce shares the NCIV’s passion for engaging the world community, and we thank the NCIV for this honor.”

Mark Rebstock, Interim President of NCIV, said, “Boeing has been an invaluable corporate partner to the NCIV network. We are pleased to recognize their commitment to supporting and embracing citizen diplomacy at the national and international levels.”

NCIV’s National Meeting continues through February 18. For more information, visit
