Respecting and Supporting Diversity

We see great value in the cultural, ethnic, gender, social and educational diversity of our people who enrich our workplace and serve our customers across our global communities in over 80 countries, enabling us to better serve and understand their needs.

We are immensely proud of our diverse workforce. Gender diversity is an important element of this. Globally, almost half of our employees are women. We partner with industry organizations to further advance gender diversity and gender equality including Advancing Women in Aviation Roundtable (AWAR), International Aviation Womens Association (IAWA) and PropelHer. These initiatives aim to promote the development and advancement of women leaders in the aviation and aerospace industries through a global network.


We invest heavily in our people and provide opportunities for employees to move within our organization. We support a variety of continuous development programs (CDP) both internally and externally, including in the areas of aviation finance, coaching and change management, and other courses specific to functions or departments. We work with our Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) partners to provide employees with the latest product news and industry developments. We also provide companywide knowledge sharing sessions as part of our continuous learning and development programs, which is a meaningful way to build our culture of learning.
