Ms. Anne Kathrine Jensen, CEO, will join the CANSO conference panel discussing the very actual and relevant issue of how the ATM industry can benefit by investing in people and increase diversity by recruiting and retaining enough women and millennials. She will join the panel with Ms. Teri L. Bristol, COO at FAA, and Kendra Kincade, Employer Branding Specialist at Elevate Aviation.The panel is facilitated by Mr. Michael Bell, Partner Korn Ferry.
The panel session will take place Wednesday 13 March 9.45 – 10.45 at IFEMA, hall 10, Conference Theatre.
If you will attend the World ATM Conference in Madrid, you are more than welcome at Entry Point North’s stand 943. We look forward to meeting you.
Attracting and Retaining Women and Millennials in ATM
Women have made great strides in many professional fields and industries but, as with aviation generally, the number of women in ATM remains low, with an even smaller percentage in leadership roles. More can and should be done to enable the advancement of women into important roles in ATM, not just as a matter of principle, but because it will support the growth and sustainability of the industry. How should we “change attitudes to gain altitude”?
The need to attract young people into industry is not unique to ATM or even aviation.A number of initiatives have been launched to encourage STEM professionals, including the ICAO Next Generation of Aviation Professionals (NGAP) initiative. Yet there remains a sense that this is nowhere near enough. Two young professionals in ATM will provide an illuminating insight into why they and their peers chose ATM, what have been their experiences to date and, most importantly, what must change if they are to remain and be followed by others.
