GE Celebrates Diversity

GE retains position as Top Corporate Fundraiser nationwide for NCCJ Walk As One/Freedom Run for the seventh consecutive year.

Celebrating the importance of diversity, GE - Aviation recently joined the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ) and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center as the presenting sponsor for this year's Walk As One/Freedom Run.

GE - Aviation's NCCJ Walk-As-One/Freedom Run team -- which included hundreds of GE people who walked or ran or supported the event -- were energized around what was another record Walk As One/Freedom Run. The GE team raised more than $128,000 and registered over 600 walkers/runners. With these results, GE retains the position of the top corporate fundraiser nationwide for the walk-a-thon for the seventh consecutive year.

Hundreds of GE employees also celebrated diversity at work by purchasing NCCJ bracelets in support of the walk/run and wore their favorite team shirts to work for Celebration Day. At Celebration Day, GE affinity groups brought in ethnic foods and several multicultural groups gave musical or dance performances.
