WOMEN AVIATORS INVITED TO DAY OF FUN AND EMPOWERMENT AT EAA’S WOMENVENTURE
Special recognition for female aviation enthusiasts at AirVenture on Friday, Aug. 2
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. — (June 3, 2013) — Hundreds of female aviation enthusiasts will be empowered through aviation at this year’s WomenVenture on Friday, Aug. 2, during EAA AirVenture 2013. Female aviators can attend a networking breakfast and a power lunch, and hear from special guest speakers.
The day begins with the Women in Aviation International Networking Breakfast and is followed by the annual WomenVenture photo. Free WomenVenture t-shirts are essential apparel of women aviation leaders and mentors that weekend, and they can be picked up beginning on July 29 at EAA’s Welcome Center.
“The power experienced during WomenVenture is incredible,” said Elissa Lines, EAA’s vice president of donor and business relations. “Gathering together with so many wonderful women involved in all aspects of aviation is inspiring and motivating. You can't help but feel you will achieve your dreams, and, just as important, you realize you are committed to helping other women and girls achieve their dreams as well.”
New to this year’s celebration is the WomenVenture Power Lunch at Theater in the Woods, which will follow the photo shoot. The cost of the luncheon is just $5 but pre-registration is required.
An unmatched lineup of speakers will be featured at the power lunch this year. They include Amanda Wright Lane, the great-grandniece of Orville and Wilbur Wright and a trustee for the Wright Family Fund of the Dayton Foundation; Sherry Carbary, vice president of Boeing Flight Service; and Z. Nagin Cox, a member of NASA’s Mission Operations Flight Team and Mars Science Laboratory.
Sponsors for WomenVenture include Senor Systems, Women in Aviation International, DTC Weather and Flight Planning Services and the EAA.
