The AGS is a non-profit trade association that is managed by elected individuals from member organisations, none of whom are paid by the AGS. The trade association was established to promote the industry and address the commercial, safety and quality aspects of the members’ activities. We recognise that equality, diversity and inclusion are an important aspect of those activities.
We are actively seeking to improve representation of people from diverse backgrounds within the industry and make the industry a welcoming place for all genders and those with BAME heritage. To this end we are supporting a graduate mentoring scheme with our partners in the Ground Forum. We are also wish to support academia to innovate in its teaching methods and content in order to widen participation.
We ask all our members to challenge themselves to be proactive in ensuring the industry becomes representative of the wider population and to give everyone the best opportunity to realise their potential and contribute to the value of the industry.
