aviation higher education, career development, diversity and inclusion, student perceptions
Multiple industries have become more supportive and engaging places to work by embedding diversity, equity, and inclusion within their institutional processes. Institutions of higher education have seen the educational benefits of integrating diversity and inclusion principles within their program outcomes. Notably, the aviation industry has seen an increase in diversity, equity, and inclusion practices to attract more customers and increase the number of potential applicants. Yet, there is scant literature on how aviation students at collegiate flight institutions perceive the integration of diversity and inclusion training within the airline industry as part of their career development. This study aimed to understand the graduating aeronautical science students’ perceptions of diversity, equity, and inclusion training in the aviation industry through the diversity training effectiveness theoretical framework.
