This traveling exhibition, organized in cooperation with its parent organisation Women in Aviation, International (www.wai.org) is set to be featured at airports throughout the world in the coming months.
Mariola Ziolkowski, President of the Deutschland Chapter of WAI says, "The objectives of the traveling exhibition are to have a traveling historical exhibition that shows the amazing development of the aviation industry in the last 100 years (we include information about the development of aircraft and airports), and to raise awareness about the important role women have played in the development of aviation."
She continues, explaining, "We aim to encourage many more women to consider aviation as a career and to continue their journey right to the top of our industry as well to encourage women to be more confident in applying for top managers positions. In the exhibition we include information about famous women from the aviation industry."
Ziolkowski also hopes that the exhibition will encourage international tolerance and understanding.
There is a fundraising element to the project. "All funds collected during the project will be directed towards encouraging first education and then a focus on aviation careers for socially deprived children by awarding scholarships to help them achieve developments along career paths approved by Women in Aviation," she says.
The exhibition will be launched this week in Dubai, UAE, during the Emerging Market Airport Awards (http://www.arabianreach.com/emaa) in conjunction with Airport Suppliers Conference 2013.
From the 15 of February it will be at Terminal 2, Frankfurt International Airport, followed by Bucharest, Moscow and Vilnius and other airports.
