On 13 October 2022, we will be organising Aviation 4 Girls event in Brussels at EUROCONTROL HQ. The theme of the event is “The New Now - You are the Future of Aviation”. The idea is to have fun and educational events for around 100+ girls (and boys) age group 15-18.
Enhanced innovation and corporate performance are recognised benefits of increasing diversity and inclusion in the aviation industry. Over the last decade, a growing number of D&I initiatives have emerged to champion underrepresented groups in the sector.
On June 29th 2022, Aviation for All and Ishka brought together an impressive group of panellists to discuss the work of various diversity groups within aviation featuring:
- - Nargis Zamaray, Founder, Aviation for All
- - Leslie Kurshan, Managing Director, Aircraft Finance Insurance Consortium (AFIC), Marsh Global Credit Specialties Practice
- - Alex Bristol, CEO, Skyguide (Swiss Air Navigation Services)
- - Daniel Rüdel, Vice President, European Pride in Aviation Network
Upcoming Trends in Workplace Inclusion
(Event from Catalyst)
European aviation is working to improve gender balance in the industry. Since 2018, EUROCONTROL has been actively promoting diversity and gender in its HR processes and internally with our staff, and working with partner organizations to try to make a difference.
De luchtvaart is nog grotendeels een mannenwereld met overeenkomstige mores. Daar willen Sannie Bombeeck (opleidingsmanager Aviation Academy van de Hogeschool van Amsterdam) en Nargis Zamaray (docent bij diezelfde opleiding) verandering in brengen. Ze hebben het Nederlandse chapter van Women in Aviation (WIA) opgericht.
With 118 individual events presented worldwide, Women in Aviation International’s October 5 Girls in Aviation Day 2019 reached approximately 20,000 attendees. Truly an international event, Girls in Aviation Day was celebrated not just in the United States but in 17 other countries in Canada and Australia as well as countries in Africa, Asia, and Europe.
