The month of February is a great time for everyone to celebrate Black History, but for Southwest Airlines, it's a yearlong celebration. Events range from local activities like actively supporting the Greater Baltimore Urban League (GBUL) and their youth programs to honoring World War II heroes nationwide as the official airline of the Tuskegee Airmen; Southwest Airlines honors African American Heritage and is proud to be part of this community.
To continue the yearlong commitment to the African American community, Southwest Airlines will feature a community-based African American organization in a monthly video to highlight the impactful work they've done. The featured organizations are part of the long-standing relationships Southwest has developed during the last 40 years. To see the videos and photos of these organizations, visit www.southwest.com/blackhistory.
"Southwest Airlines' long heritage of serving the African American community stems from the Company's commitment to diversity at all levels—whether ideas, knowledge, or actions," said Ellen Torbert, Southwest Airlines' Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion. "With more than 80 African American community based organizations as partners, an active Corporate Community Affairs team, and a diverse workforce, we can take pride in a Company built out of the heart of our communities."
