FACE Program

Designed for young leaders

Together with the air cargo industry, IATA recognizes that there is an urgent need to invest in people, promote gender diversity, and attract and develop young talent. The Future Air Cargo Executive (FACE) program aims to solve this pressing issue through a three-pillar strategy that supports executive management development among rising stars in air cargo and logistics.

FACE three-pillars strategy

Recruiting and retaining future executives

IATA organized the first FACE Summit (FACES) in 2013 during the World Cargo Symposium, to highlight the important role young leadership plays in the future growth of the air cargo industry. The first FACES edition was a punchy half-a-day session mixing guidance, panel discussions, interactive sessions and testimonials. In 2014, the second edition of the summit focused on the importance of innovation as a vehicle for air cargo transformation and in how young leaders can contribute to change.

In addition, the FACE Program aspires to strengthen the links with universities to attract new blood to our industry. By participating in the “Speakers for U” initiative, air cargo experts can share their professional experience, transmit their passion and inspire students to consider a career in the industry.
