Mente, LLC / Aviation for Humanity
Kimberly Perkins is, in no particular order: an international pilot, marathon runner, devoted mother, researcher, speaker, and published author. She’s also a charitable entrepreneur creating Aviation for Humanity, a non-profit engaging with the traveling public to bring school supplies to underfunded schools worldwide.
Perkins is a trailblazer within business aviation, where she’s a regular presence affirming the value of a more inclusive workforce. “Our current safety processes are important, but they break down without inclusion,” she says. “We’re entering a new wave of aviation safety that focuses on inclusivity because investing in human capital is our industry’s most precious resource.”
