Wednesday July 26, 2017
Nine years ago the goal was to take a photo of what would be the world’s largest gathering of female pilots, and on August 1, 2008, approximately 800 women gathered in pink T-shirts during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. The celebration of women in aviation has steadily grown in the years since, and in 2017, women involved in all facets of the aviation community will gather for the tenth annual photo as part of EAA’s WomenVenture celebration.
Fun-filled activities and forums designed to empower women and enable them to pursue their dreams in aviation take place throughout the week, with key celebrations happening on Wednesday, July 26. WomenVenture gives women the opportunity to build camaraderie within the EAA community and become a part of a unique sisterhood in the aviation industry, opening doors to mentorship, knowledge, and participation.
WHEN & WHERE
