Practicing Inclusion: Actions Speak Louder than Words
4 p.m. – 5 p.m. EST

Diverse and inclusive companies drive innovative results, yet half of global businesses surveyed in a recent PwC study acknowledge challenges due to inclusivity issues in the workplace. For organizations working to strengthen their diversity and inclusion programs and policies, changes can be challenging – and rewarding. Hear from industry leaders about their perspectives; learn about NBAA’s internal and external initiatives; and strengthen leadership through diversity and inclusion within your company or flight department.


Recommended panel sessions

Celebrating Women in Aviation
Day 1: 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. EST

2020 has taken a toll on people and companies across the industry and new research indicates that the global pandemic has negatively impacted women in particular. Join panelists for a conversation with industry leaders about why supporting and retaining women in the workforce now is critical for the next generation and how companies can address the core challenges women are facing.

Communicating Effectively With Your Team
Day 2: 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EST

Don’t get siloed! When confronting operational circumstances maximizing cross-departmental communication is critical to achieving successful outcomes. Our panel of industry veterans will draw on their decades of experience to share stories and best practices about meeting objectives through overcoming communication breakdowns. Panelists will discuss ideas for flight departments to encourage team spirit and working collaboratively versus individual silos – pilots vs. maintenance vs. schedulers/dispatchers vs. cabin crew vs. management.


The theme for this event “Today, Tomorrow, Together” is exemplified by an immersive virtual conference with many of the traditional elements of SDC and IOC, including 3D booths, keynote speakers, education sessions and opportunities for attendees, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors to connect and engage.
