Though to flourish and thrive, the aviation industry needs both men and women on board, we’re celebrating International Women’s Day today and all the women who contribute to the aviation industry every day.
We are optimistic about the future of aviation and we look forward to witnessing the progress in bridging the gender gap. Several initiatives and partnerships are being undertaken at ICAO to support the advancement of talented women within the global aviation community.
