Women in Aerospace Europe UK Local Group launch

Please join us on the Thursday morning of RISpace (October 27) at the networking breakfast for the launch event of the UK local group of Women In Aerospace Europe (WIA-E).

Women In Aerospace Europe is pleased to announce that the UK has joined the countries that have a WIA-E local group.

Because the UK community is spread around the country, instead of focusing on a city, the newly founded WIA-E UK Local Group will encompass the whole country. Our aim is to organise events across the many sites of our members, allowing us all to see the full range of UK activities and meet new contacts from across the country.

The group’s aims are to bring together the UK Space Community in support of a more diverse and equal workforce. The group will initially focus on three areas: De-mystifying Unconscious Bias, Networking/Mentoring, and the creation of a Network of Experts. Ongoing networking events are organised throughout the year.

For more information, or to join the local group, please email wiaeurope.uk@gmail.com or look online at wia-europe.org/

I hope to see you there!
