    Next Generation - Preparing the aviation leaders of tomorrow

    The Middle East is the world’s fastest growing aviation market, and in the UAE alone, the  sector is expected to provide approximately 750,000 jobs and require more than 55,000  pilots and 62,000 technicians by 2020. The region offers excellent career opportunities in aviation industries. It empowers women in highly skilled roles across the sector which is a major initiative of regional governments and an important element of their economic diversification strategy.  This session explores these issues in greater detail and provides a roadmap for success.

    Work Life Balance - Managing a successful career and a happy family

    In many Middle East countries, there are still cultural reservations to women choosing career  paths that require them to spend time far from home - either as a student or in the  workplace. However, the aviation industry now offers a wide range of opportunities allowing  women to be educated and find jobs close to home, while regional governments are also  encouraging more mother-friendly workplaces. In this session, experts share their views on  how women in the region can manage a successful and satisfying career without  compromising on their family lives.
