A Note From Mike Waldron
Managing Director, Diversity Strategies

American Airlines is a place where diversity and inclusion is the way we do business... a way of life.

We are truly a global airline, flying people to destinations worldwide.

At the airports - and with frontline employees - customers are welcomed and served by a blend of ethnic diversity, cultures and experiences. Diversity and inclusion at American Airlines translates into remarkable actions of service and respect.

Our Company has been recognized as a national leader in advancing matters of equality and inclusion. Magazines like Black Enterprise, Essence and Latina Style have acknowledged American as being a great place to work. Additionally, we've been recognized by the National Business & Disability Council for advancing the extraordinary cause of dignity and respect for our differently-abled co-workers, and we have achieved the 100% score on the Human Rights Corporate Equality Index for each year since its inception.

By encouraging and supporting the talents of diverse people, we've created a rich tapestry of engaged, dynamic teams, all committed to our airline. Our focus on diversity and inclusion is felt by our customers, employees, and the communities we serve around the world.

We remain steadfast in the important everyday work of bringing people together through diversity and inclusion.
