As the summer draws to a close, we look ahead to the fall and the exciting events we have on the horizon. WIA continues to work on providing quality information and tools to help you stay one step ahead of what’s coming up in our industry.

One of the events I am most looking forward to is WIA Stories: The Journeys of Incredible Women in Aerospace on September 20th. The program consists of an intimate gathering of colleagues as esteemed women leaders share the story of their personal journey to success. This off the record conversation promises to be filled with helpful advice paired with fantastic stories depicting how each of these incredible women made their mark. Those wishing to attend the event should come prepared to network with colleagues and share their own personal story of success. The featured speakers are 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. I am thrilled to have such exceptionally outstanding women speaking at this unique event.
