WomenVenture - Wednesday July 27, 2016 of AirVenture
WomenVenture is a week-long program that offers fun-filled activities and seminars designed to empower women and enable them to pursue their dreams in aviation.
WomenVenture gives every woman the chance to build camaraderie, to become part of a unique family that understands the challenges they face in this field. You’ll learn that anything is possible when we use the female collective voice to inspire and motivate others to embrace The Spirit of FlightTM. Together, we can support each other and open the doors to mentorship, knowledge, and participation.
