As Chair for Women in Aerospace, I have been talking with many of you and other colleagues regarding how WIA could best respond to the racial injustice that has rightly come center stage in the American dialogue. We do not accept the injustice that continues to involve acts against people of color. WIA is built on tenets of inclusion, knowing that we all need to work together to promote a vibrant, diverse, and accepting aerospace community. That being said, this dialogue on racial injustice brings to light the continuous work we still need to do to create diversity in our programs, events, and other efforts.
