IAWA, in partnership with IATA Americas, hosted a luncheon during the IATA Wings of Change Conference that was held in Miami, May 2-3, 2017. Alina Nassar, President-Elect was also invited to participate in the panel: “Preparing the Next Generation of Aviation Leaders”, where she discussed the role women play in the aviation and aerospace industries and areas of opportunity to motivate and develop women in technical and operational fields.
The IAWA luncheon was attended by close to 80 people, including students from various universities in Florida, among them Divya Kamania, IAWA scholarship recipient from Embry-Riddle University. We were also joined by Alex de Gunten, Chair of the Aviation Committee of the Miami Beacon Council and Peter Cerda, IATA Regional Vice-President for the Americas.
We want to thank our sponsors, Pratt & Whitney, TRU Simulation + Training and Aergen Management Services for sponsoring this event that gave the opportunity to women Executives and aviation students to connect and learn more about IAWA and its activities.
