Women in Aviation

                                                                                  

Women in Aviation at San Jose State University aims to promote relationships within the aviation industry, mentor students seeking aviation-related careers, promote women in the aviation field, and conduct outreach to younger generations. As a support system for the Aviation Department of SJSU, we strive to further the personal, academic, and professional growth of all our members.

The purpose of this Crowdfunding Page is to send our members to the 2017 Women in Aviation International Conference in Orlando, Florida. This event is three days that are full of opportunities to get more involved with what’s new in the business and aviation industry. There are dozens of educational sessions, professional development seminars, and keynote speakers that provide insights about the issues facing the business and aviation industry. This conference gives our members the opportunity to connect with aviation industry professionals, meet other aviation students from across the nation, be more effective when hosting outreach programs for middle school and high school students, become inspired and motivated, and most importantly, learn a great deal more about how we, as students and future employees, can benefit the aviation industry.

Please give now to help us to accomplish these goals and continue to grow our program!
