ANA has set ambitious diversity goals to increase the percentage of female officers and managers to 30% as early as possible in the 2020’s. All participants in this industry-wide campaign commit to increasing the representation of female employees in both senior positions and areas where women are under-represented areas within their airlines. ANA is committed to adhering to 25by2025 guidelines which call for airlines to report annually on key diversity metrics, increase female nominations for IATA governance roles to a minimum of 25% by 2025, and to work with IATA to ensure that at least 25% of the roles within the organization are held by women by 2025.

“ANA has been proactively introducing a number of programs designed to help women thrive in our organization since 2014. One such initiative allows employees to select their own working hours and days, adding flexibility that opens up new opportunities for women,” said Jun Taneie, Executive Vice President and Director of Diversity & Inclusion Promotion. “In addition, ANA has worked to present our flight attendants with training and mentorship programs that allow them to transition to roles in other ANA Group business units. As a result, the number of ANA’s female executives has increased significantly in recent years.”

ANA has previously been recognized for its efforts to promote diversity, receiving the Advanced Achievement Awardblank from the Japan Women’s Innovation Network in 2018 and 2019. ANA is a signatory to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goalsblank (SDGs) including Achieving gender equality and empowerment of all women.
