MWAA creates diversity, inclusion, social impact VP post
Tanisha Lewis promoted to lead new office
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which oversees the Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport, created a new Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Social Impact on Wednesday, to be led by Tanisha Lewis, a 21-year veteran of the authority.
Lewis was named the authority’s first vice president of diversity, inclusion and social impact, in which she will build a team to “consolidate and deliver strategies and programs related to diversity, equity and inclusion,” according to a news release.
“Combining these initiatives with data analysis and a clear strategic approach, the Airports Authority can objectively assess our current state, accurately report progress and align corporate reporting with stakeholder expectations to transparently communicate what we stand for as an organization,” MWAA President and CEO John E. Potter said in a statement.
Lewis most recently worked as the manager of human capital management performance and business readiness, creating leadership development and supervisor training courses, as well as developing MWAA’s corporate social responsibility program and its first annual report. She holds a master’s degree in human resource management from the Catholic University of America.
