Women in Aviation: Why Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Matter

No Comments

Attracting women to the piloting profession is challenging but retaining them is even more difficult, despite ongoing efforts. Stakeholders in the aviation industry must focus on inclusion and work to remove existing barriers that preclude women from seeking careers in aviation. Now is the time to encourage women pilots to participate in training, leadership, and committee roles and provide a diverse perspective and voice at the table.

IFALPA published a new Position Paper Women in Aviation: Why Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Matter, created by IFALPA’s Female Pilot Working Group (FPWG), that Captain Pia Meyer, Captain Camilla Tsan and Captain Stella van den Beukel are part of on behalf of the ALPL.
