Since joining easyJet Johan has renewed the airline’s commitment to being a company in which women are supported to fulfil their full potential. One of his first actions was to establish a project to develop the diversity and inclusion strategy, including a focus on women at easyJet. This strategy will build on the existing initiatives that focus on championing women at easyJet, such as the Amy Johnson Initiative to encourage more women to become pilots. As a result of the initiative, last year easyJet recruited 49 female new entrant co-pilots. That’s a 48% increase on the previous year and takes the proportion of easyJet new entrant female pilots to 13%. Earlier this year, as a way to show his personal commitment to equal pay and equal opportunity for women and men, he asked the easyJet Board to reduce his pay to match that of easyJet’s former CEO, Carolyn McCall, when she was at easyJet.
