All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest airline, has received the Advanced Achievement Award from the Japan Women’s Innovative Network (J-Win) for the second consecutive year. J-Win’s annual Diversity Awards honour Japanese companies which are proactively working to improve diversity and inclusion.
Applicants for the awards were judged by their commitment to promoting women to senior leadership, family leave policies and career advancement opportunities for women. The carrier scored highly in all of these areas, helping it earn this prestigious designation for the second year in a row.
“ANA recognises the contributions of all our employees and believes that involving women in the decision-making process at every level strengthens the entire organisation,” said Naoto Takada, executive vice president of ANA. “Our efforts to promote diversity and inclusion have shown significant results, but we remain committed to further improving career prospects for female employees.”
The airline is a member of the 30% Club, an elite group that promotes the role of women in the workplace. In addition to helping women rise to senior leadership positions, it has instituted networking programmes that are designed to help women advance within the organisation.
