It is Women of Aviation Worldwide Week (WOAW) this week

Women of Aviation Worldwide Week (WOAW) is a global awareness week for girls of all ages observed to mark the anniversary of the world´s first female pilot license, issued to Raymonde de Laroche on March 8, 1910.  We use this opportunity to celebrate all strong women in aviation. Join ADB SAFEGATE in the celebration!

March 8 is the anniversary date of the world’s first female pilot license, issued to Raymonde de Laroche on March 8, 1910. It´s also the International Women’s Day (IWD). At ADB SAFEGATE we use this opportunity to celebrate all strong women in aviation and especially our ADB SAFEGATE colleagues across the globe. IWD marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality and is celebrated on March 8 every year since the early 1900s to emphasize the importance of achieving gender equality, women’s rights and women empowerment in all aspects of society.

The aim of the IWD 2024 #InspireInclusion theme is to to celebrate diversity and empowerment on International Women’s Day 2024 and beyond. This year’s campaign theme underscores the crucial role of inclusion in achieving gender equality. It calls for action to break down barriers, challenge stereotypes, and create environments where all women are valued and respected. Inspire Inclusion encourages everyone to recognize the unique perspectives and contributions of women from all walks of life, including those from marginalized communities.

The theme for International Women’s Day, shared by UN Woman is,  “Invest in women”: Accelerate progress”. The theme for UN Women’s Day 2024 is aligned with the demands of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women 2023: ending gender-based violence through adequate funding. Without ambitious investments to scale-up prevention programmes, implement effective policies, and provide support services to address violence against women and girls, countries will fail to end gender-based violence by 2030.

With offices around the globe that are filled with passionate employees representing different nationalities, cultures, languages, and identities, we pride ourselves on being a cultural melting pot.
