WOMEN AVIATORS INVITED
TO DAY OF FUN AND EMPOWERMENT AT EAA’S WOMENVENTURE
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
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.
