Diversity is important at American

Diversity is important at American

CEO Doug Parker

We are an airline that represents our world, rich in diversity — in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, veteran/military status, religious affiliation, experience, thought, background and culture. At American, diversity and inclusion isn’t an inspirational goal, it’s the way we achieve success. It powers our ability to grow a workplace where every employee drives innovation that creates the airline that customers want to fly and investors want to invest in. We are a global community, supporting each other and our customers in realizing the possibilities we can achieve with a dynamic and vibrant team.

“At American, our employees are the source of our success, with a clear connection between the quality of our team and the quality of the experience we can give our customers.

We’re working to restore our company as the greatest airline in the world and can only do that with employees that are as diverse as the customers we serve. So we must work to recruit, develop, retain and engage the very best people – those with unique perspectives and ways of thinking who can help us become the global leader we’re poised to be. Leaders of the company are then accountable for cultivating an inclusive work environment that helps unleash all of our employees’ potential, celebrating everything that a dynamic workforce has to offer."
