The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that nominations have opened for second edition of the IATA Diversity & Inclusion Awards which recognise and encourage industry excellence.
Nominations are now open in the three categories – Inspirational Role Model; High Flyer; and Diversity and Inclusion Team Award – from 3 March until 30 April 2020. They will be judged by an independent panel consisting of the 2019 winners of the IATA Diversity & Inclusion Awards. The 2020 awards will be presented at IATA’s 76th Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from 21-23 June 2020.
“Aviation needs to reflect the society we live in. Promoting diversity and inclusion makes us better and more sustainable businesses. To source the skills and talent needed to meet future demand, aviation needs role models who can inspire future generations of leaders. The inaugural Diversity and Inclusion Awards enabled us to highlight strong female leaders and dedicated teams who are driving the industry forward in this important area. I look forward to seeing equally impressive achievements highlighted by this year’s applicants” said Alexandre de Juniac, director general and CEO in IATA.
