Avis Budget Group, Inc. today announced that it has received the prestigious Company Award from The Association of Women Travel Executives (AWTE) for its commitment to gender equality by encouraging female staff members to reach their potential.

“We are very proud to be recognized by AWTE for our diversity and inclusiveness efforts,” said Larry De Shon, president, EMEA, Avis Budget Group. “We strongly believe that our success as an organization is a product of our commitment to diversity, and a reflection of the many contributions made by women on our teams.”

The Company Award is presented to a company in the travel industry that has shown that it supports and is committed to equality on its board and within its management structure. Avis Budget faced stiff competition for the award, which was announced at the AWTE’s 60th anniversary event held at The Marriott Grosvenor Square in London in July.

“The AWTE Company Award is a formal recognition of a business that demonstrates commitment to supporting women in the workplace. We were thrilled to have some excellent contenders for this year’s coveted award, and we are delighted to have awarded it to Avis Budget for its exemplary attitude in providing a workplace in which women can thrive,”  said Barbro McAusland, chair, AWTE.
