Workforce of the Future: Why Diversity Matters

  • Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center 300 East Ocean Boulevard Long Beach, California 90802 USA (map)

Come hear Lee and Anita discuss diversity trends and implications as featured guests on this panel at the 89th Annual American Association of Airport Executives Conference and Expo.

The majority has become the minority in the United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as of 2014, over 50% of all children under the age of 5 years old were considered a minority. This is the workforce of our future. So how can airports prepare to meet this challenge of a minority as majority workforce? Join us for a town hall forum with other AAAE members and airport executives, as well as diversity experts and university representatives, to discuss what a diverse workforce means, why diversity is important, how to start planning for the future and why the future is now with regard to airport diversity programs.
