Delta Airlines is standing firm on its commitment to advance equity and sustainability.
According to Provoke Media, Keyra Lynn Johnson will now serve as VP and chief diversity, equity & inclusion (DE&I) officer where she will be responsible for driving Delta’s progress in becoming a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization.
As a 26-year Delta employee, Johnson is no stranger to the major airline’s business methods and previously worked as a senior leader on the airline’s corporate, internal, and employee communications teams. She has also worked in DE&I in various capacities since 2016.
In addition to Johnson’s promotion, Amelia DeLuca will also become the new managing director of sustainability and will be responsible for overseeing Delta’s long-term sustainability strategy, managing sustainability investments, and partnering with government affairs and legal teams.
DeLuca brings in 11 years of experience with Delta, most recently serving as managing director of global sales support.
“As a purpose-driven company, this goes beyond doing the right thing,” said chief marketing and communications officer Tim Mapes, who oversees Delta’s purpose efforts, in a statement. “It is imperative to our success—as a business, for our employees and for the communities where we live, work and serve—that we build a future where we value and appreciate each other’s differences and that we preserve the planet for generations to come.”
