Women are currently underrepresented in the aerospace sector. In an environment such as ours, it can be challenging to find role models, or examples of women who have achieved what you would like to achieve while dealing with the same issues.
Nevertheless, there are certainly women who have walked these paths. Whether the area is engineering, communications, management, science, law, educational – together WIA’s members embody the full spectrum of the aerospace sector.
Are you an individual who has achieved professional success in your field, or perhaps someone who would like to talk to someone who has? Are you senior professional who would like to share your experience, a student wanting help with your CV, or an aerospace worker looking for some tips? The WIA Europe mentoring circle programme puts potential mentors and mentee in touch (either in person or remotely) so that experience can be shared and learned from.
Would you be interested in joining a mentoring circle, either as a mentor or mentee? Get in touch with us.
All members are welcome to put themselves forward as mentor for a specific subject or to ask for support as a protégé. Please remember that every experience is valuable and interesting.
For beginners and young colleagues in aerospace: please consider that WIA offers a wide range of good examples to follow and a community for support and suggestions. Address your issues to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and learn to fly.
