Supporting the UAE's Vision to Empower Women Across the Workforce
Empowering women in highly skilled roles is a major initiative of the respective GCC governments and a key element of their economic diversification strategy for a more inclusive and sustainable society. Run in partnership with key global aviation entities and leading UAE universities and vocational colleges, the Women in Aviation conference is designed to highlight and discuss ways to expand the opportunities for women in this evolving industry.
In 2018, the WIA conference welcomed over 350 attendees – including key female officials and senior managers working in aviation across the region, top female students at regional aviation colleges and Human Resource managers at regional aviation businesses and government entities. Even higher attendance is expected for the 2019 edition, reflecting the growing presence and importance of women in the aviation industry not just in the Middle East but across the world.
