‘Gender diversity is not about companies meeting their quota numbers on a spreadsheet, it is about inclusion, acceptance & equal opportunities.’
WAI Australian National President Tammy Augostin.
The WAI Australian Chapter hosted a wonderful event on the Friday evening during the spectacular Avalon Airshow 2017 highlighting gender diversity within the aviation fields.
With over 100 guests and VIP’s in attendance from all spectrums of the aviation sectors and fields, the evening went off without a hitch, so much that many guests found it difficult to leave. Guests were treated to delicious canapés and refreshments throughout the night, with many taking the opportunity to network with many guests.
Guest speakers from various aviation based fields, engaged the audience with their thoughts on gender diversity within the industry and what actions were helping to facilitate the shift in perceptions and initiate change within the industry.
The evening ended with guests moving outside to enjoy the spectacular Avalon night air show.
The committee would like to thank and recognise the following sponsors of the evening for their support of the event;
