New Women in Airports Network launched
The Australian Airports Association (AAA) has launched a new Women in Airports Network (WIAN) to coincide with International Women’s Day today.
AAA Chief Executive Officer Caroline Wilkie said the network would create a community to support the advancement of women across all aspects of airport operations.
“Airports operate in a truly global industry and a diverse workforce is absolutely crucial to support our growth and success,” Ms Wilkie said.
“With global passenger traffic expected to double in the next 15 years, there will be many great career development opportunities for airport staff in the future.
“We are absolutely committed to ensuring gender diversity is a clear focus as we prepare for this next phase of growth in the industry.”
A dedicated LinkedIn Group will start the dialogue before a Women in Airports Forum is held in November.
