Aviation, a historically male-dominated industry, is expected to grow exponentially in the next 10-15 years. There will be a labour shortage unless steps are taken to meet the resource demands of this growth. Aviation, and transport in general, lag behind other sectors in regards to women entering and staying in the industry. Since only a small percentage of women currently work in the sector, gender needs to be addressed now as part of the strategic initiatives of aviation organizations. Glenda Newton highlights the need for Member States to enable more women and girls to choose aviation, and for the industry to encourage women to reach for the skies.
