Our flight deck should reflect the diverse group of people on board our planes every day. That’s why we plan for 50% of the 5,000 pilots we train in the next decade to be women or people of color. Learn more and apply now: t.co/VbOFvFOksB pic.twitter.com/r0ScH6MQAJ

NOTHING SPECIAL IN THE AIR: United Airlines Announces They Will No Longer Hire the Best Pilots.
Their website details this diversity commitment with more wokespeak than I can usually tolerate in one paragraph.
Today, United has one of the most diverse pilot populations of any U.S. carrier with nearly 20% of our pilot group made up of women and people of color. We are working toward raising that number even higher by partnering with diversity-led organizations and continuing to remove gender and racial barriers. And we’re going one step further with plans for 50% of United Aviate Academy students being women and people of color to ensure our students reflect the diversity of the customers and communities we serve.
