Airbus India has launched an ambitious programme for women professionals who want to return to corporate careers after a sabbatical or maternity leave.
‘Fly Again’ was launched on International Women’s Day, as part of Airbus India’s efforts to ensure that women can return to professional life through structured mentoring, up-skilling and on-boarding.
The company will organise mentorship programmes and fund returnship and workshops to bridge the skill gap of the selected candidates. The company will also organise job fairs to increase awareness about the returnee programme.
“Airbus believes in creating equal opportunities for all. Progress has been made in this direction, but we will do more. Today, we are hiring more women in leadership roles and will continue until the exception becomes the norm,” said Anand Stanley, President and Managing Director, Airbus India and South Asia.
