‘A world of possibilities:’ From equity to empowerment, Delta women show diversity is key to business success
In honor of Women's History Month, Delta is highlighting powerful women in every field and function across the airline.
A recent study by McKinsey & Company shows that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity are 15 percent more likely to have financial returns above respective national industry means. Women at Delta bring their voices, ideas and leadership to the table as part of the airline's inclusive culture and thriving business strategy.
From the TechOps hangar to the airline's innovation Hangar, Delta women pave the way for others while making important changes and accomplishments along the way. As one of Fortune's Best Workplaces for Women, promoting diversity and intersectional empowerment of women is key to Delta's success.
Delta understands that to connect the world, its workforce first has to reflect it.
