King County International Airport-Boeing Field and the Port of Seattle sponsor Women Fly at the Museum of Flight.
Women Fly high school day invites students to participate in a day of motivational and career-oriented activities that allow them to meet and learn from professional women working in a variety of aviation and STEM careers. Students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in aviation (women, communities of color, and those who identify as queer or gender non-binary) are encouraged to attend.
In order to encourage high school participants to follow the goals that they have already set out for themselves, workshop leaders will provide detailed advice about applying for internships and scholarships and navigating intercultural differences in the workplace. Participants will also have opportunities to engage in activities that involve topics such as coding, navigation, and engineering.
Participants will also attend an empowering lecture by a woman in the aviation industry who will share her own personal story of overcoming obstacles to achieve her dreams.
The Women Fly Resource Fair will feature colleges and universities, professional organizations, and clubs who will discuss potential opportunities with participants.
