The UK’s aerospace and aviation sectors have come together to work towards gender equality in the industry through the Women in Aviation and Aerospace Charter.
Members of the Charter include aerospace manufacturers, airlines, airports, trade bodies and others. The Women in Aviation and Aerospace Charter reflects the aspiration of the industry to see gender balance across all levels.
What is the Charter?
a commitment for organisations to support the progression of women into senior roles in the aviation and aerospace sectors by focusing on the executive pipeline and the mid-tier level;
a recognition of the diversity of the sector and that organisations will have different starting points – each organisation should therefore set its own targets, where appropriate, and implement the right strategy for their organisation; and
a requirement for organisations to publicly report on progress to deliver against any internal targets to support the transparency and accountability needed to drive change.
What do signatories commit to by signing the Charter?
having one member of their senior executive team who is responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion;
setting internal targets, where appropriate, for gender diversity in senior management;
publishing progress annually against any targets in reports on their website; and
having an intention to ensure the pay of the senior executive team is linked to delivery against any internal targets on gender diversity and inclusion.
