Women in Aviation Offering Scholarships for Leadership Conference

Only 30 Slots Available for Fully-Paid Attendance

Rising stars in the aviation and aerospace industry are encouraged to apply to attend Women in Leadership: A Program for Emerging Leaders conference.

The conference is a 3-day event to help foster the next generation of female aviators and stakeholders. This year's program will once again be hosted by Women in Aviation International, with instruction by Harvard University’s Division of Continuing Education. Funding by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation has helped bring the course to life at Harvard’s Cambridge, Massachusetts, campus.

The program is ideal for "high-performing WAI female members" with anywhere from 5 to 10 years of experience and the interest to "advance their careers in leadership roles" throughout the aerospace industry. Seating is limited, with a cap of 30 attendees to be selected for funding support that will include program fees, hotel, meals, and a stipend for airfare.

"WAI’s goal is to help high-potential managers master core business concepts, build key leadership skills, and explore and develop their personal leadership style," says the group's press. The first 2 days will be conducted entirely on the Harvard campus, with a 3rd day spent in a hybrid remote leadership coaching session with instructors from afar. Later on, after the completion of the in-person course, Harvard faculty members will meet remotely with participants to discuss how they have applied their newfound skills in their day to day careers. Participants will earn a special certificate awarded by Harvard University's Division of Continuing Education to add to their professional resumes.

“We know that the advancement of women into leadership roles in our industry is essential to driving cultural change in aviation,” said Allison McKay, WAI CEO. “This new professional development program is purposefully designed for women working in the aviation and aerospace industry. As an organization, WAI is committed to changing the face of aviation as well as promoting environments where women feel welcomed, are valued, and can be successful,” she added.

Interested applicants have plenty of time to apply through the WAI's March 15, 2023 deadline at the link below.
