Women in Aviation's impact at Southwest:

“Women in Aviation has provided life-changing opportunities for me! Through this fabulous organization, I’ve met so many people that have impacted my career. My role in Pilot Hiring allows me to mentor women and hopefully give back and make a difference in some small way. I look forward to meeting you in Nashville!”

"I can honestly say I owe my career to Women in Aviation. I became a member as a student pilot in 2009 and attended my first conference in 2010. Since then, it’s become my mission to support and encourage women in the industry the same way I’ve received support. Through scholarship opportunities, mentorship, and fellowship I’m so grateful to Women in Aviation International and proud to continue to support the organization and its members."

“I’ve been a Women in Aviation member for more than 20 years. It doesn’t surprise me to see this organization grow from such humble beginnings to presenting the industry’s premier aviation networking event. When women put their heart and soul into something, our collective strengths make magic happen. I look forward to meeting many of you over the next few days to share what Southwest Airlines can offer your future.”
