Aviation has always found ways to bring the world closer together. In keeping with the spirit of this, the Alberta Aviation Museum is partnering with STEM Sisters and Elevate Aviation to bring communities together ONLINE through Soaring Opportunities: Exploring Women’s Roles and Contributions in Aviation. Marking the museum’s 8th annual celebration of Women of Aviation Worldwide Week, this celebratory online event is free and set to stream worldwide on Saturday, March 13th from 2:00pm – 4:00 pm.
This is the first time these three organizations have come together to celebrate women’s past, present, and future contributions to the aviation industry. Discover the early pioneering stories of women aviators, trainers, and more! Engage with a professional panel of industry specialists. Ask questions, participate in discussions and break down barriers to a burgeoning inclusive industry! Whether you are wanting to learn more about industry, considering a career change, or would like to connect with other like-minded professionals, there is something for everyone!
Saturday’s celebration serves as a conclusion to Elevate Aviation’s Cross-Country Virtual Tour, and is part of Women Of Aviation Worldwide Week (WOAW); a global aviation awareness week for girls of all ages to mark the anniversary of the world’s first female pilot licence (March 8, 1910). The week is a call to address gender imbalance in the air and space industry.
