Diversity at AIR: Employee Resource Groups

Voluntary, employee-led, and open to all staff members, AIR’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) play a prominent role in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace aligned with our mission, values, and goals, as well as executing our diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy.
