Women in Aviation International's 32nd Annual International Women in Aviation Conference will be held virtually on 11 and 12 March 2021. The all-virtual platform will allow members and industry friends to attend from the convenience of their home or office.
While additional registration and agenda details will be forthcoming, WAI plans to deliver all the content of its trademark conference experience through education sessions, keynote speakers, a virtual exhibit hall, personal and professional development seminars and workshops, as well as 2021 scholarship awards, a Pioneer Hall of Fame induction celebration and networking opportunities.
“The safety and wellbeing of our members, partners, exhibitors, attendees and staff is our first priority,” states CEO Allison McKay. “We had hoped to gather in-person next year, but as we continued to monitor and follow the local and state recommendations and guidelines for Reno, Nevada, not to mention the growing impact of COVID-19 worldwide, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person event. Thank you to our members and exhibitors who took the time to respond to our surveys. We took all of your feedback into account when making this decision.
“Similar to our virtual Girls in Aviation Day that reached participants in 58 countries, WAI is confident that our virtual event will enable us to reach more of our members and interested participants around the world than we might have with an in-person event.”
