This has been a year unlike any other for all of us. As 2020 comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to reflect and highlight the accomplishments and opportunities that WIA offered over the last 12 months. When faced with the difficulties this year has brought us, we have demonstrated our tenacity and creativity as we continued with robust WIA programming. However, we also realize the past year has been stressful and challenging. I hope that our events have provided support, connectivity, and interesting content to help during this difficult time.
Listen to a brief continuation of our discussion started during WIA's Race and Gender Equity Program on June 3rd, with speaker Bird Guess, as well as WIA's Chair, Dr. Rebecca Keiser and Aviation Week's Lee Ann Shay
