Geneva- The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has opened nominations for its 2023 Diversity and Inclusion Awards. On 19 April 2023, nominations will close at 23:59 CET for all individuals or organizations working in the aviation value chain.
Diversity and Inclusion awards recognize excellence in three categories:

Inspirational Role Model Award: Rewarding a woman who holds a senior position within the aviation industry and has contributed significantly to business delivery, as well as diversity and inclusion efforts. Aviation industry nominations are welcome.
High Flyer Award: The award recognizes a woman aviation professional under the age of 40 who has demonstrated leadership by actively advocating for diversity and inclusion. All women in the aviation industry are welcome to apply.

Diversity & Inclusion Team Award: An airline that has demonstrated measurable improvements in diversity and inclusion as a result of its work in this area. Any airline member of IATA is eligible to apply.
As the aviation industry competes for the next generation of talent to deliver the benefits of global connectivity, diversity and inclusion are top priorities. IATA’s Diversity and Inclusion Awards highlight leaders who are making a difference and help accelerate progress. Our goal is to inspire others to take action to advance aviation’s gender balance by acknowledging the results they have generated. Willie Walsh, IATA’s Director General, encouraged people to nominate and looked forward to recognizing the winners at our upcoming Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit in Istanbul.
Through Qatar Airways’ generous sponsorship, each award winner will receive $25,000 (payable to the awardee or their chosen charity for diversity and inclusion activities).

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker, said: “We have taken several measures to promote diversity and inclusion within our airline as we believe a diverse workforce can help our industry to thrive.” We have been a supporter of the IATA Diversity and Inclusion Awards since the program was launched in 2019. By providing an inclusive environment, we will continue to inspire leaders in the industry, promote equality, and make a positive impact.”
Travelers care about gender diversity. According to the IATA Passenger Survey (November 2022), 64% of travellers prefer airlines that are leaders in gender diversity. Younger age groups place even greater emphasis on gender diversity, with 84% of 18- to 34-year-olds and 77% of 35- to 44-year-olds expressing a preference for airlines committed to gender diversity.
A judging panel consisting of the 2022 Awards recipients will evaluate nominations for this year. The panel will be chaired by Karen Walker, Editor-in-Chief, Air Transport World.
• Güliz Öztürk, CEO of Pegasus Airlines;
• Kanchana Gamage, Founder and Director of the Aviatrix Project;
• Alina Aronberga, Senior VP Human Resources, airBaltic.
