The British Aviation Group is committed to being a diverse and inclusive organisation, which reflects the communities and society in which we serve. 

We will champion inclusion and embed best practice in all we do, sharing learning and knowledge with our members. We will demonstrate inclusive leadership and work with our members to promote exemplary levels of diversity and inclusion, safeguarding BAG and the aviation industry into the future. 

This supports BAG’s overall Purpose and Vision of Promoting UK Aviation – To increase aviation market share and reputation of BAG members across the UK and overseas as part of an inclusive and sustainable UK aviation sector.

 BAG operates a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Working Group that focuses on the following three priorities.

  1. Improve our own organisation: Help make sure BAG operates as a group as inclusive as possible (assisting Chair, Deputies and Board)
  2. Education: Share best practice with the wider membership. Help member companies – particularly those who haven’t got access to larger libraries and in house resources.
  3. Advocacy: BAG’s role in the wider supply chain; e.g. profiling and playing our part in moving the industry dial.

What our members say

Marie/Denis, Mad4
One of last week’s highlights was attending the BAG Summer Seminar and evening reception. We found that it was very engaging, very well organised, venue was spot on and everyone was so friendly. Loved engaging with everyone in such a relaxed environment, lots of funny stories were shared. Particularly liked meeting with likeminded professional problem solvers like ourselves.

Paula – Mentoring Proigramme
“The BAG mentoring programme has been a game changer in my professional life. Having a mentor has helped me believe in myself, with my self-confidence and to see things from a different perspective. My mentor challenges me on what is needed and encourages and supports me as well. It is great to be able to have an honest and open discussion with someone who has been through similar experiences and learn from her. I wish everyone could have a chance to have such a mentor!”
Paula Pontes, MAG
