Stakeholders are encouraged to enhance women’s representation in the aviation workforce, implement leadership and mentorship programs for women, tackle stereotypes and gender bias, and promote a better work-life balance for female employees, according to an official source on Wednesday.

The circular aligns with the gender equality principles in the Indian Constitution and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)’s vision to ensure equal opportunities in aviation.

It outlines several steps for stakeholders to improve gender equality in the workplace.
