Event description

Description

For more than 25 years, every two years, many professional women from across Canada’s military and civilian aviation industry, gather to share their experiences and knowledge at the Canadian Women in Aviation (CWIA) Conference. We are pleased to be in Calgary, Alberta for the first time for this year hosted by at SAIT Polytechnic June 21-24, 2017.

The final banquet gala on June 24th is an inspiring evening finale to the 3 day event offering a chance to attend and connect with like minds. Tickets to the gala banquet are open to friends and family who wish to join Conference goers at this energy lifting and motivating event. This is a fun, enjoyable evening to enjoy our sponsors, attendees, social entertainment, including a harpist and DJ, and the good company we enjoyed for 3 days already.

This year we are thrilled to be joined by Award-winning journalist Dawna Friesen, anchor of Global National, the flagship national newscast for Global News. A bio has been added to our website here http://cwia.ca/dawna-friesen/

Women have traditionally comprised less than 6% of Canada’s aviation workforce, which often makes career navigation and mentoring a challenge. Those of us already established in aviation careers want to make the industry more appealing to the next generation of young women, as well as help to retain the talent we already have. The purpose of the CWIA Conference is to facilitate professional development opportunities, by showcasing civilian and military role models including pilots, navigators, engineers, maintainers, air traffic controllers, administrators and other aviation occupations. Over the course of the three-day event, the enthusiasm, motivation and knowledge of our more experienced attendees, is tapped into to educate and inspire our future and present aviators.

The 2017 Conference theme of “Rise and Thrive” was chosen, as it resonates on so many levels with our mix of military and civilian attendees. Dawna Friesen will share her journey to thriving with a catered illustration of how individuals can thrive to their best.


We look forward to sharing this magical evening with you.
