SiG grows support for WiAA Charter

SiG grows support for WiAA Charter
Sharing in Growth and its beneficiaries now account for 20 of the total 120 signatories to the Women in Aviation and Aerospace (WiAA) Charter.

Sharing in Growth and its beneficiaries now account for 20 of the total 120 signatories to the Women in Aviation and Aerospace (WiAA) Charter.

They join companies like BAE Systems, Boeing, British Airways, Easy Jet, Leonardo, Rolls-Royce, Thales and Virgin Atlantic in their Charter commitment of working together to build a more balanced and fair industry for women.

Sharing in Growth had already recruited ten companies to support the Charter, having run a seminar for its beneficiaries in Derby earlier this year. Then at the Sharing in Growth All STAR (Sharing Together Achieves Results) event in London this month WiAA co-chair Katherine Bennett CBE senior vice president of Airbus was invited to explain the importance of the Charter in helping industry attract the best talent.

She said: “The Women in Aviation and Aerospace Charter has made great progress since it was launched last July. Seeing so much commitment from the aviation and aerospace industries to work towards gender equality is promising for our future.”

Sharing in Growth CEO Andy Page also urged companies to support the Charter which he said was intrinsically linked to Sharing in Growth’s vision of developing highly valued manufacturing for this generation and the next.
