Highlighting diversity

American works with its Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs), such as the Latin Diversity Network, to highlight movies that celebrate diversity across its inflight entertainment. American’s EBRGs include 20 groups made up of more than 26,000 American Airlines team members that represent different backgrounds, cultures and experiences.

In the past, American’s inflight heritage channels has spotlighted Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Pride as well as Asian American and Pacific Islander Month.
