Ballot Box to Wing Box
2018 Farnborough Airshow, the UK Prime Minister announced that “HMG will seek to embed a UK Women in Aviation and Aerospace Charter, to build a more balanced and fair industry for women”.
Baroness Sugg, Aviation Minister announced further details at a special panel session held at the show. Dame Deirdre Hutton, Chair of the CAA and Pro-Chancellor of Cranfield University has agreed to be the lead figurehead for the Charter.
The idea was originated by #Marymacleod, Kornferry at an International Aviation Womens Association event hosted in May by #Tanyadolan Kennedys with DfT Aviation Minister, Baroness Sugg.
The momentum and pace this idea generated was incredible, we had so much support so quickly with 53 signatory companies and organisations. Huge thanks to the other organisations – Aerospace Growth Parternship, IAWA, Women in Aero, Women in Av, ADS, AirlinesUK, AOA and to The Royal Aeronautical Society. Huge thanks also to the Department for Business, Energy, Innovation and Skills and the Department of Transport for their support and to friends and colleagues in aviation and aerospace.
