Women in Aviation International (WAI) UK Chapter is hosting a networking morning on Friday 20 July at the Farnborough air show, targeted at school girls and girl guide groups with interests in aviation.

The event, called 'See her, Be her' is running from 10:00 to 12:00 in Hall 1's Lloyd and Navigate Rooms as part of ADS Group's Futures Day.

The recently newly formed WAI UK Chapter, supported by ADS, Farnborough International and a host of other international women's aviation associations, is looking to inspire girls in their formative years to consider a career in aviation.



Young attendees, aged between 11 and 14, are encouraged to take part in some interactive sessions, says WAI UK, and hear from an influential line up of speakers in a variety of aviation sectors, led by Dr Shini Somara, a leading science, tech and innovation broadcast personality.

"Inspiring young women to pursue careers in aviation is important to our industry as we look to establishing a more gender equal sector," says ADS chief executive Paul Everitt

"The 'See her, be her' event is a great way for them to get to know more about the industry and work towards making aviation a more diverse sector, with equal opportunities for all."
