DCU and Aviation Industry Year of Inclusion – Survey
Ireland is globally recognised as a leading hub for aviation. The industry contributes a significant €4.1bn to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and supports 42,000 direct jobs. This strong and vital sector includes industry leaders in each of the core aviation segments. As the industry continues to grow, a key challenge is in building and developing a more inclusive and diverse workforce. This is vital for leveraging diversity of thought and building a sustainable pipeline of talent into the future.
In response to this challenge, industry, supported by government, and in partnership with the DCU Centre of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion, has committed to delivering the ‘Year of Inclusion in Aviation 2020’. The aim is to build awareness and collaboration in the industry in 2020 and beyond. The project is aligned with the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport’s principle goal: “To foster the growth of aviation enterprise in Ireland, to support job creation and position Ireland as a recognised global leader in aviation”.
