Flybe targets gender imbalance in aviation with launch of “FlyShe programme”

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in September 2018:

Our thanks to James for this in PR Week. It includes a link to a video (3:26) of some women at FlyBe. He writes:

There are two deliciously ironic parts in there:

  1. One of the women says that “I didn’t have the degree or the technical skills stated on the job advert, but I got the job anyway, so don’t let it hold you back”
  2. Another says “It’s all about getting girls at primary school to feel that they can apply to aviation and it’s not just for boys. Then all you need to worry about is getting the best person for the job, and not whether they’re male or female”

Beautifully, staggeringly ironic, and ill thought through.
