Air New Zealand has set a target of having 20 percent of Māori and Pasifika employees in leadership roles by 2022.

It’s part of a focus on increasing cultural competency within all areas of the business that helped it win the first Diversity & Inclusion Team Award at the 2019 International Air Transport Association annual meeting held in Seoul, Korea.

Air New Zealand was unanimously chosen as the winner from 70 written and video submissions, with judges citing its diversity programme as authentic, impressive and a source of inspiration for other global airlines.

The airline’s chief people officer, Jodie King, says companies in the top quartile of ethnic and gender diversity are 33 percent and 38 percent respectively more likely to have a higher than average market share.

She says the company encourages diversity of thought in its decision-making processes to authentically reflect its customer base.

The airline’s senior leaders will work to build their fluency in Māori culture and customs, including attending immersive overnight marae workshops.
