Women in Aviation Reinforces Allyship with Black Aerospace Professionals

OBAP’s Open Letter Gets Additional Backup with Separate Statement

Women in Aviation International issued a supporting statement backing up the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals in its open letter impugning those who question the capability of minority professionals in the industry.

“As a longtime partner in fostering greater inclusivity in our industry, WAI has proudly signed OBAP’s letter and offers our continued support and resources as one of the many aviation affinity groups with the same goal,” said WAI CEO Lynda Coffman. “At WAI, we stand for providing access, education, and resources to those that dream of a career in aviation and aerospace, which will only make our industry safer and stronger. When there are more professionals available, there are a wider range of candidates from which to choose with the highest qualifications, experience, and commitment to excellence.”

Lynda added, “We know with certainty that our shared passion for aviation transcends any differences among us. We also know our words are not enough. We recognize the urgent need for action and change in the world, and in the aviation communities specifically. The WAI staff, board of directors, and our more than 18,000 members stand together to carry forth our unwavering mission and to lift one another up with steadfast and absolute support and respect. We are committed to being a meaningful part of the change needed in the world and are dedicated to doing more.”
