Now in its second decade, EAA’s WomenVenture is an annual celebration of women in all facets of the aviation community. Activities are scheduled throughout the week of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh to provide women the opportunity to connect with other women who love aviation and build camaraderie within the EAA community.
Key celebrations take place on Wednesday, July 25, when a group of more than 1,000 women is expected to gather on Boeing Plaza for the 11th annual WomenVenture photo. Events kick off that morning with the annual WAI Connect Breakfast and culminate with the WomenVenture Power Lunch featuring keynote speaker Heather Penney.
