Wings for All Program is the focus of an event dedicated to female representation in the airline sector

Bringing together representatives from the academy, airports, and industry, Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) moved the audience at the event “Aviation, female substitute”, held on March 8, in Brasilia, DF, in celebration of International Women’s Day. The debate brought a female perspective on the difficulties faced by women from entering to maintaining a career in the areas of aviation, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Furthermore, ways to reinforce possible discriminatory treatments, the lack of diversity in the sector, education as a driver for social transformation, and ANAC’s role as an incentive for changes in search of equity were addressed. To open the event, CEO Ricardo Catanant emphasized the percentage of female pilots in Brazil. “Only 3% of Brazilian pilots are women. This number, in itself, reminds us of the importance of the Wings for All program, which aims to promote diversity and inclusion of women in our industry”, he highlighted. The CEO also highlighted the importance of the research project “Women in Civil Aviation: studies for inclusive regulation in the sector”, the result of a partnership between the Agency and the University of Brasilia (UnB). The project was formalized in February this year, through the Decentralized Execution Term (TED), to begin mapping the Brazilian scenario regarding female representation in the airline sector. – https://aeroin.net/programa-asas-para-todos-e-foco-em-evento-dedicado-a-representacao-feminina-no-setor-aereo/
