The Women in Aviation International German Chapter, based in Frankfurt, has mounted its largest and most ambitious project to date: A worldwide traveling photo exhibition titled Women in Aviation.
The traveling exhibition, organized in cooperation with Women in Aviation, International, will be staged at airports throughout the world in the coming months.
Mariola Ziolkowski, president of the Deutschland Chapter of WAI says, “The objectives of the traveling exhibition are to have an historical exhibit that shows the amazing development of the aviation industry in the last 100 years with information about the significant growth of aircraft and airports, and to raise awareness about the important role women have played in the history of aviation.”
She continues, “We aim to encourage many more women to consider aviation as a career and to continue their journey right to the top of our industry as well as encourage women to be more confident in applying for top managerial positions. In the exhibit we include information about famous women from the aviation industry.”
The exhibition was launched last week in Dubai, UAE, during the Emerging Market Airport Awards in conjunction with Airport Suppliers Conference 2013. From Feb. 15, the exhibit will be at Terminal 2, Frankfurt International Airport, followed by Bucharest, Moscow and Vilnius and other airports.
Women in Aviation, International President Dr. Peggy Chabrian says, “We are proud of the accomplishments of our network of chapters worldwide. We congratulate our Deutschland Chapter for their initiative in promoting careers for women in aviation.”
