Inform your network – we all know someone who deserves recognition. And who knows; maybe that person is you?

The WIA Europe Outstanding Achievement Award
Our Outstanding Achievement award is on nomination basis. Do you know a man or woman who has dedicated their time and effort to advancing women in the aerospace sector? Do you know someone who has contributed to major developments in our industry, whether that be engineering, science or academe? Do you have a role model or mentor, friend or colleague who you would like to see honoured? Let us know. The prize is a bespoke WIA Europe engraved statuette.
