Johan is extremely proud of the work he and his team are doing to make easyJet an inclusive airline. easyJet plc’s Board is 30% female, with Johan’s direct reports being 50% women. When Johan joined easyJet as CEO, he demonstrated his personal commitment to equal pay and equal opportunity for women and men, asking the easyJet Board to reduce his pay to match that of easyJet’s former CEO, Carolyn McCall, when she was at easyJet. The airline is on track to meet their ambitious target that 20% of its new cadet pilots will be female by 2020 and rates of pay are equal and standardised based on role and rank. As part of easyJet’s pioneering Amy Johnson initiative to encourage more girls to consider becoming a pilot, the company has launched a mentoring programme for Britain’s youngest pilot, Ellie Carter (16), with Training Captain Zoe Ebrey. easyJet supports Girlguiding’s aviation badge, and in FY18, easyJet pilots undertook over 100 visits to schools, youth and aeronautical organisations. easyJet’s commitment to integrating D&I into their policies is demonstrated by the ITV documentary about trainee pilots at easyJet, ‘Inside the Cockpit’.
