ABEAR joins IATA’s 25by2025, which focuses on increasing the number of women in aviation

The Brazilian Airlines Association (ABEAR, in Portuguese) joined 25by2025, a global and voluntary initiative by IATA (International Air Transport Association) with the aim of increasing female representation in the aviation sector. So far, 181 airlines and organizations have joined the initiative, which aims to change key industry metrics. This commitment was created in 2019 with the purpose of changing the main metrics of diversity and inclusion, increasing by 25% or at least 25% until 2025, the number of women in leadership positions and in underrepresented areas. With ABEAR’s membership, the number of signatories in the Americas increases to 38 (the highest percentage among IATA members from all regions), second only to Europe, with 81 participants out of a total of 181. According to a Korn Ferry survey, only 6% of airlines have a female CEO, while 5.1% of pilots are women. Additionally, women make up about 26% of air traffic controllers, 18% of flight dispatchers, and less than 9% of aerospace engineers. A McKinsey study (Women in the workplace 2022) states that gender equality is important not only from an ethical point of view, but also for business success, as diverse teams are more innovative, adaptable, resilient, and perform better. IATA hopes to achieve the initiative’s objectives by 2025 and continue working to make the Brazilian airline industry more diversified. – https://aeroin.net/abear-adere-ao-25by2025-da-iata-cujo-foco-e-aumentar-o-numero-de-mulheres-na-aviacao/
