Ever wondered what it’s like to work in the travel and the airline industry? Well, maybe it’s time to stop wondering. American Airlines has teamed up with AfroTech to provide a select group of students and guests with an inside look at how American works and the career opportunities they offer. Since its founding over 90 years ago, American Airlines has always lead the airline industry in innovation and customer experience. 

On Nov. 8, come to the American Airlines College Students and Innovators Mixer at Iron & Oak to learn how American stays on the cutting edge of technology. Among many discussion topics, IT leaders will talk about how it’s harnessing emerging technologies like Machine Learning and Computer Vision to reimagine the future of travel and how the company prioritizes diversity and inclusion in every business unit. You will also find out about American’s incredible employee travel benefits (think, unlimited free travel) and mingle with members of their IT organization. American looks forward to recruiting new team members, networking with industry experts, and connecting with promising IT startups at this event. 

American is actively working to build a strong and diverse pipeline of talent through multiple community partnerships dedicated to encouraging and mentoring minorities and women who are traditionally underrepresented in the aviation industry, creating the next generation of diverse leaders in the workforce.
