Masco Flight Operations Supports Diversity in Aviation
As part of Masco’s commitment to addressing the barriers and biases that affect people’s ability to fully access opportunities and bring their whole selves to work, Masco’s Flight Operations team was proud to continue and create partnerships with local organizations who promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the aviation field throughout 2020. Though we weren’t able to host our annual Girls in Aviation Day event in person during COVID-19, our sponsorship of Women in Aviation International chapters at two local colleges helped the organization continue the tradition of offering engaging and educational experiences for girls considering careers in aviation through a day of virtual programming.
Masco Flight Operations also formed new partnerships with local college chapters of the National Gay Pilots Association and the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals. Masco funds to these groups support educational and networking events, scholarships, and advocacy for communities who are largely underrepresented in the professional aviation space.
