Morgan Stewart from Vaughn College, the creator and moderator of the Women Exceeding Barriers event held on October 26th provided a rare opportunity to be in the company of top women leaders in the aviation community. Morgan thoughtfully led the panel into discussions regarding the gender pay gap, work family balance, personal thoughts on how each was perceived when with their male colleagues and what we can all do to encourage girls and women to follow their dreams.
The message from this panel of successful leaders was to continue to educate yourself and others, practice patience and determination, change can happen at all levels, get out of your comfort zone, take risks, network in your field, seek out a mentor and stay relevant.
The panel members, each in their own personal way, shared their journey and the challenges they each faced. They are dedicated to supporting the next generation of women leaders through their commitment to the aviation industry and the local community.
