As 2018 draws to a close, I am so proud of the progress and accomplishments WIA has made this past year. This is especially so after completing this fall’s incredible jam-packed calendar of events!

One of the fall events we are still getting great feedback on was our program, WIA Stories: The Journeys of Incredible Women in Aerospace. During this event, we had the great pleasure to hear about the personal journeys and learn valuable lessons from this year’s featured speakers: The Honorable Heather Wilson, 24th and current Secretary of the United States Air Force, and The Honorable Deborah Lee James, 23rd Secretary of the United States Air Force. We were also thrilled to have our host sponsor’s CEO, Lockheed Martin’s Marillyn Hewson, present to make introductions.
