Hall of Fame Women In Emerging Aviation Technologies

When history is written about emerging aviation, the intent is to ensure the contributions of women are included in the dialogue.

The Hall of Fame for Women in Emerging Aviation Technologies recognizes highly experienced and accomplished businesswomen in the industry. The inductees represent a cross-section of professionals in industry-enabling career fields.

We want girls to go through life with their eyes wide open and not held back because society continues to pigeonhole them into a specific role or position.
