One of the largest gender-discrimination class-action lawsuits ever is getting closer to going to trial, as court proceedings are begin this week in a Boeing case involving 28,000 women.

Boeing would have to pay hundreds of millions of dollars if it loses, as well as take a hit to employee morale and the company’s reputation. According to The Seattle Times, the lawsuit alleges that women at Boeing were paid less, denied training, denied promotions and in some cases, sexually harassed. Jim Dagnon, retired chief of human resources, is among the people expected to defend Boeing in court.

In another federal courthouse this week, Boeing is fending off a separate race-discrimination class-action suit brought by 1,850 Asian engineers and technical workers.
