TOKYO, March 6, 2020 - All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan's largest and 5-Star airline for seven consecutive years, has received the Advanced Achievement Award from the Japan Women's Innovative Network (J-Win) for the second consecutive year. J-Win's annual Diversity Awards honor Japanese companies which are proactively working to improve diversity and inclusion. Applicants for the awards were judged by their commitment to promoting women to senior leadership, family leave policies and career advancement opportunities for women. ANA scored highly in all of these areas, helping it earn this prestigious designation for the second year in a row.
"ANA recognizes the contributions of all our employees and believes that involving women in the decision making process at every level strengthens the entire organization," said Naoto Takada, Executive Vice President of ANA. "Our efforts to promote diversity and inclusion have shown significant results, but we remain committed to further improving career prospects for female employees. We are proud to be recognized by J-Win and hope that we can set an example for all Japanese companies to follow."
ANA is a member of the 30% Club, an elite group that promotes the role of women in the workplace. In addition to helping women rise to senior leadership positions, ANA has instituted networking programs that are designed to help women advance within the organization and has also opened up management level positions for employees working part-time. ANA was commended for its senior management commitment and programs aimed at enhancing work-life balance among all staff, including paternity leave for new fathers.
The United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) stress the need for efforts to promote gender equality, and ANA has worked to meet these goals just as it emphasizes other key SDG objectives.
