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. This week is a call to address gender imbalance in the air and space industry. Join the ADB SAFEGATE Graz team for the celebration! Thank you, Andrea Schroeder, for the fabulous paper plane idea, and Stefan Kunz, for taking the photo.
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.
The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.
The theme for International Women’s Day, shared by UN Woman is, “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality”. This theme is aligned with the priority theme for the upcoming 67th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW-67):
Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
At ADB SAFEGATE, innovation and technology are in our blood. We work actively for gender equality and are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
