European Women in Technology

How digitalisation & innovation are transforming European aviation
In collaboration with
European Women In Technology
European Women in Technology 2022 - banner

We were at the European Women in Technology career fair to help participants discover how aviation can offer exciting careers to women graduates.

We explained how EUROCONTROL is investing in innovation and technology to build the aviation systems of the future, including driving the digital transformation of the operational systems we use to manage Europe’s traffic.

And we outlined how we are working to pave the way for more women in aviation, as we look to build in more diversity and inclusion to an industry that is aiming to build back better from the COVID-19 pandemic.

How we are aiming to tackle our gender gap

Women have traditionally been underrepresented in the aviation industry, with EUROCONTROL’s pre-pandemic demographics (71:29 M:F) very much reflecting this imbalance.

We are determined to tackle this gap and lead by example in our sector. We have rethought our internal processes, and launched a series of diversity & inclusion initiatives in-house and externally to attract more diverse candidates, all in support of our strategy to rebalance our workforce over the coming years.

We have signed up to IATA’s “25by2025” initiative, committing ourselves to a highly ambitious diversity target: raise by 25% the proportion of women working in technical, managerial and decision-making roles at EUROCONTROL, and achieve this by 2025.

This commitment comes at a crucial time for the Agency, with the next decade set to see the departure of an entire generation of staff. This offers a strategic possibility to build diversity into our future by ensuring as diverse and inclusive a staff population as possible as we renew our workforce.

Building diversity and inclusion into this process of renewal will strengthen our ability to deliver, particularly at the decision-making level, and in terms of innovation, productivity and flexibility
