Fiona McKay, deputy executive director of PNAA said that women in Washington’s aerospace industry are looking for the latest trends and techniques from a female perspective. She added that women want to learn more about how to build their careers and do so in an environment that offers the freedom to explore ideas.
McKay also added that it is important to consider a multicultural environment in Washington’s manufacturing companies.
PNAA is offering two upcoming events that focus on women and minorities in the industry.

PNAA is hosting a Women in Aerospace event this May – Learn More
As the decade draws to a close we are in an unprecedented era for both women and aerospace. In the current climate our working environments are going through significant shifts, providing new challenges and opportunities for women. In aerospace, these changes are occurring among a transforming product mix, changing business models, and various new emerging technologies. To explore these topics join us for a unique, one-day conference that brings together managers, executives and rising leaders in aerospace.
The conference provides the opportunity to hear aerospace’s leading women deliver the latest market intelligence, share their perspectives on personal and professional development and network for continued action beyond the event. The event will include focused panel discussions, an inspirational keynote, fireside chats, table-top breakout sessions and speakers that will energize you with their personal stories of leadership, diplomacy and career pathways.
