ACI World joins gender equality campaign

At the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Global Aviation Gender Summit held in Cape Town, South Africa aviation leaders came together. A milestone was reached at the summit, as Airports Council International (ACI) World Director General Angela Gittens announces the organization’s step towards promoting gender equality in the aviation sector.


“ACI has long been a proponent of diversity in the workforce and is proud to have partnerships and agreements with ICAO and IATA to work collaboratively on many facets of the gender equality issue.

“Thanks to our partnerships, we will continue to put the focus on education, training and job opportunities by offering to our airport members robust suite of Global Training educational programmes.”


In terms of professional development and support, ACI provides scholarships for the Airport Operations Diploma Programme (AODP) and the Airport Executive Leadership Programme (AELP). The latter is targeted at future CEOs, Deputy CEOs and Vice-Presidents of airport operating organizations and is one of our ways of creating a network of future industry leaders.
