7 classroom modules, 3 e-learning courses
Women account for fewer than 5% of airline CEOs around the world. Even though the number of women involved in the aviation industry has steadily increased, we still have a gap in senior management. Research shows that gender diverse teams perform 73% better, they score higher results and have better returns.
In order to have more female leaders, IATA has developed a program to sharpen the leadership skills of women so they can become more visible in the workplace, and strengthen their aviation knowledge and analytical skills. Over 4 days you will have 7 face-to-face modules taught by industry experts and prominent guest speakers; 3 e-Learning courses; organized networking opportunities.
Are you an upper middle to senior executive woman looking to elevate your career to the next level? This program is for you! You will gain unique knowledge of the aviation industry from the IATA internal and external experts and you will build the confidence needed to take the next career step.
