Bridget Chatman, Chair
Firstly, I’d like to express what an honor it is to have been selected as Chair of Women in Aerospace. I am so grateful for this privilege and thank you for entrusting me to serve our community in this capacity.
I have been a member of WIA for 13 years serving in many capacities including as an active board member since 2017. The purpose of this association means so much to me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to steer its path these next 2 years into an even-more equity-driven culture for the next generation of women leaders interested in aerospace.
