AIN is pleased to announce the winner of the 2021 Top Flight Awards in the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion category: Duncan Aviation Refugee Assistance
Duncan Aviation works with the Refugee Resettlement Program and other nonprofit organizations in Lancaster County, Nebraska, to ease the integration and assimilation of refugees into the community.
Half of Nebraska’s refugee population resides in Duncan’s headquarters city, Lincoln, which is now home to Afghani, Bosnian, Chinese, Kurdish, Mexican, Russian, Sudanese, Tajik, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese refugees and immigrants.
Duncan works with area nonprofits to provide these new residents with English language learning classes immediately upon resettlement and will begin providing English language learning volunteers in 2022. The company also works with community organizations to provide building maintenance, electrical, plumbing, painting, and food pantry assistance.
Duncan Aviation has already hired two refugees and hopes to continue supporting the refugee community.
