Delta Air Lines has created two new executive positions to oversee its efforts in both sustainability and in diversity and inclusion.
The carrier promoted Keyra Lynn Johnson, a 25-year Delta veteran who has led the company’s diversity and inclusion efforts over the past few years, to Delta’s VP and chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer. Johnson will lead Delta’s efforts to be “an anti-racist, anti-discrimination organization,” including working with an action plan announced last year that includes increasing the percentage of Black leadership at Delta to reflect its employee base, reworking its talent strategy to increase diversity and creating opportunities for underrepresented groups.
Delta also named Amelia DeLuca as its managing director of sustainability, where she will work on the carrier’s long-term strategy to reach carbon neutrality. DeLuca has worked with Delta for 15 years in various sales, revenue management and network planning positions.
