Women in Aviation International (WAI) is the largest organization in the world dedicated to increasing the number of women involved in all aspects of aviation and aerospace.
Our goals are to ...
- Invest in our current and future workforce
- Build a diverse, inclusive, and sustainable aviation and aerospace industry around the world
- Inspire women and girls to pursue careers in aviation and aerospace.
Women in Aviation International is proactively working to address the challenges the aviation and aerospace industry is facing today. In most aviation occupations, women make up less than 20% of the workforce—and for the last 60 years, the introduction of women into the aviation and aerospace industry has been largely dormant. The aviation industry needs more women to pursue aviation careers to access the breadth of talent needed to meet our current—and growing—workforce challenges. Attracting, retaining, and advancing women in aviation is critical to the aviation industry’s safety, sustainability, profitability, and ability to innovate.
Our strategic focus is to provide services and support to our members at every stage of their journeys in aviation and aerospace.
We encourage, empower, and educate all those whose interests, lives and work involve aviation and aerospace regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, physical or mental abilities, or point of view. We know with certainty that our shared passion for aviation transcends any differences among us.
