Profiles: Women in Aviation

MMIMG_3545editedcropped.jpg ...FedEx was among the first to hire female pilots and now compares favorably in the number of women pilots we have. We also work hard to make sure women are well represented throughout all our air operations, including maintenance, engineering, and safety.

FedEx was built on the dreams of many people and will continue to thrive on such dreams. If you’re interested in pursuing aviation as a career, I encourage you to apply all the passion, determination, and hard work needed to reach your goals, just like these team members.

Our Real Fortune is Our People

FortunePicCollage-sq.png Walk the halls of any FedEx building, and you’ll notice what makes our company unique. It’s easy to visualize what our company leaders often talk about-- that we make up a diverse melting pot of cultures, ethnicities and viewpoints.

FedEx continues to grow thanks to team members whose own experiences give us global perspective, but what’s more fascinating to me is what’s common. The language may be different, but the conversation is often the same. We all speak “purple!” Whether in Memphis, Milan or Mumbai, our 300,000 team members work every day to deliver the Purple Promise, and once again, our efforts have been noticed.

FedEx has been named to the FORTUNE World’s Most Admired Companies list again this year, placing #8 and #1 in the delivery industry!

MLK16.jpg.jpeg On January 20th, 80 FedEx employees gathered in a warehouse in South Atlanta to package 20,088 meals through Stop Hunger Now, a global humanitarian aid organization aimed at ending hunger worldwide. In just two short hours these employees filled, weighed, sealed, and boxed thousands of bags containing a nutrient-rich mixture of rice, soy, and vegetables.

For those who have never experienced a meal packaging event with Stop Hunger Now, it might come as a shock to hear that it is even possible to put together so many meals in so short a time...
