Women in
Aviation and Logistics

The Women in Aviation and Logistics initiative aims to mobilise businesses, trade associations, and individual professionals to advocate for change and define concrete targets and an action plan to achieve gender equality in the air cargo industry.

Programme
objectives

  • Raising awareness of women air cargo professionals by celebrating and promoting their great achievements in the industry

  • Maintaining a public database of female speakers in aviation and logistics

  • Setting-up forums at global, local, or company levels to share best practices and actionable advice among industry peers

  • Establishing a knowledge centre with industry facts and figures to raise awareness on current gender gaps within air cargo, including the gender pay gap and other inequalities, and open public debates to challenge the status quo

  • Increasing gender balance in senior management and leadership roles

  • Pushing for progress in broader diversity and inclusion metrics across the industry

Take
action now

  • Support the Women in Aviation & Logistics Pledge on social media to amplify the message

  • Join the 2021 Open Challenge for event organisers to help redress gender balance on speaker line ups and delegate attendance at conferences globally

  • Celebrate women’s achievements: publicly recognize the contribution and achievements of your female colleagues, consistently using #InspiringCargoWoman hashtag

  • Increase women’s visibility at events: identify female experts we would all benefit from hearing and encourage them to submit their expert profile to help event organisers to set up diverse panels

Launch event

Over 70 supporters joined the first Women in Aviation and Logistics Seminar on 23 March 2021, featuring an invited speaker Henrik Kofod-Hansen, Co-Founder of Novosensus, who highlighted that while only 13% of senior leaders are female, research shows they make better leaders when scored across a variety of categories. 

Delegates agreed that the lack of gender equality within the aviation and logistics sectors is very visible at events, in the media and in senior leadership representation, especially at Board Room level.
