Organisations need to be in tune with changes in society if they are to thrive and succeed. Nowadays, the social and business benefits of a gender-balanced diverse and inclusive workplace are not contested, but with the female percentage of the workforce at EUROCONTROL comprising only 27%, we know we still have a long way to go. We in the aviation sector recognise the need for change and have started to send out a number of strong signals. In our field, a key driver of change was the roll-out of a EUROCONTROL Diversity & Inclusion Policy, focusing initially on gender diversity. We sponsor, take part in and fully support related initiatives initiated by our partners and stakeholders. We subscribe to the launching by the European Commission of the Women in Transport – EU Platform for Change and signed the EU Declaration on equal opportunities for women and men in the transport sector. We also support ICAO’s efforts to achieve gender equality in the aviation sector.
The Platform for Change initiative also enables stakeholders to make their individual endeavours more widely known and to share their good practices. Read the full article here.
