Woman Executives in Aviation, Aerospace & Defense
On January 3, 2021, Future Aerospace Aviation Workforce published an article that covers the progress women have achieved in breaking the aerospace and aviation “glass ceiling.” According to the article, “While women are making progress we have a long way to go.”
That’s why organizations like the International Aviation Womens Association, Women in Aviation International, the Flight Safety Foundation, the National Business Aviation Association, the International Air & Space Hall of Fame, the National Aviation Hall of Fame, and other stand-out industry groups are so important. They herald the accomplishments of women who have broken the glass ceiling — not an easy feat, as I can attest!
I’m honored to be mentioned in the article along with amazingly talented women like Barbara Barrett, 25th Secretary of the Air Force comprising the U.S. Air Force and Space Force (who wrote the foreward of my autobiography). Other notable women include Amy Spowart, President and CEO, National Aviation Hall of Fame, Bethany Davis, Director Flight Innovation/Advanced Flight Deck, Gulfstream Aerospace, and many others.
In fact, it’s quite a lengthy list of achievers in many sectors of the aerospace and aviation industries.
FA/AW News has been looking for a comprehensive list of women aviation/aerospace executives. Failing that, it curated its own from research, including a recent Flightglobal report — Women have 14% of top airline jobs in slow trend towards parity and Women in Aviation & Aerospace Charter.
