Podcast: How to Draw More Women to Aviation

June 15, 2020

Despite significant progress made in recent decades, women still make up less than 10% of the aviation industry workforce. Recently, the U.S. Department of Transportation formed the 30-member Women in Aviation Advisory Board to find out why, and among the members of this board are two women with close ties to NBAA. “It’s not just a women’s issue,” notes Kate Fraser, a member of NBAA’s board of directors and head of safety for Joby Aviation. “To make the aviation industry a better place for all people, especially women, we have to have support from our male colleagues.”

In this episode of NBAA’s Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Kate Fraser, Head of Safety for Joby Aviation and an NBAA board director
  • Kriya Shortt, Senior Vice President, Parts & Programs for Textron Aviation and a member of the NBAA Advisory Council
