Flight Centre aims for the stars with Layne Beachley

Flight Centre is proud to announce its partnership with the Layne Beachley Foundation, Aim for the Stars, as this year’s Presenting Partner.

Aim for the Stars was created to nurture talented young women through mentoring and financial support to fulfill their potential.

With two thirds of its 19,000 global workforce being women, this partnership is a logical step for the travel agent.

“Our organisations share core values that include striving to see more women in senior leadership roles,” says Flight Centre Travel Group’s Chief Operating Officer, Melanie Waters-Ryan.

As a global company we share Layne’s core belief that women need to support and be kind to other women, and that for true change to happen, we need to have male champions to get on board and be part of the journey. We have key groups at all levels of our company to implement our strategies and vision, so that all women and men are equally represented, valued and rewarded,” she said.

As Presenting Partner, Flight Centre is looking forward to being actively involved in the Foundation’s key events for the forthcoming year.
