The Boeing Company has had Transgender Guidelines since the 2004-2005 timeframe. The guidelines, in and of themselves, are not terribly unique compared to many companies who score 100% on the CEI. The process for administration of the guidelines is innovative in its focus on true inclusion and for the transitioning teammate.
