Women in Advanced Air Mobility: Big ideas to build a new industry
Time & Location
About the Event
Wisk Aero, Women and Drones, and the Canadian Advanced Air Mobility Consortium in collaboration with 20 other organizations, hosted an online conversation around how to build the most inclusive, responsible, and successful Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) industry possible.
Numerous studies have shown that the more diverse a workforce is, the more prosperous it is. The current aerospace and aviation industries have worked hard to create greater equity and diversity over the past decade, with a variety of challenges limiting their efforts. This event, as one part of an annual three-part series including LGBTQ+ and Indigenous peoples, helped to move this conversation forward as we build this new industry together. Given the lessons learned from aviation, we can build equity and diversity into the foundation of the new Advanced Air Mobility industry, creating a more profitable, sustainable and equitable industry.
This event started off with a keynote fireside chat, followed by breakout conversations on four important topics hosted
by industry leaders who believe in this work.
This new industry brings new job opportunities and old diversity and inclusion challenges. Could we use our past experiences to build an industry more profitable and diverse than ever before? How will companies fill talent shortages? What career opportunities await young people? Countless studies have shown that the more diverse a workforce is, the more successful it is. As we stand on the threshold of building the Advanced Air Mobility ecosystem from the ground up, how do we eradicate historic injustices and offer equal opportunity to all?
