Radio 4 has just released a list of the 100 most powerful women in the UK . However, the list highlights gaps, for example in the military, and it also seemed lacking in the fields of physics and engineering. This under-representation is not new and the fact that it is reflected across the aviation and aerospace sectors, at all levels, has been recognised by the RAeS for some time. So in 2009, the RAeS Women in Aerospace Committee (WAAC) was formed, with a remit to start looking at and addressing this issue.
WELCOME TO OUR FIRST E-NEshortly.WSLETTER The RAeS Women in Aviation and Aerospace Committee is conscious that we need to communicate more effectively with members, in addition to keeping our section of the Society’s website updated. So this is the first of our e-newsletters with our latest news. We hope you find it interesting.
