Elevate Aviation was started in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We are all volunteers who are passionate about our careers. Our goal is to create a shift in the aviation industry that encourages gender balance by connecting women who are already in the aviation industry with a network of support; raising awareness about our careers; and providing encouragement and mentorship to anyone who dreams of a career in aviation.
Elevate Aviation was started because we have a passion to help women become strong, independent and self-sustainable. Women are vastly under-represented in the aviation and aerospace sectors and Elevate Aviation was created to increase gender equality. We want to amplify women's voices that are already in this field, use gender responsive advertising to attract women to aviation, and provide a platform for women to thrive and succeed.
