Women in Aerospace Europe – UK

The UK local group was founded in 2016. Because the UK community is spread around the country, our goal is to organise events across the many sites of our members, allowing us all to see the full range of UK activities and meet new contacts from across the country, with the auspicious to form more local(ised) groups in the future.

The current aim of the group is to bring together the UK Space Community in support of a more diverse and equal workforce.

The group will initially focus on three areas:

  • De-mystifying Unconscious Bias
  • Networking/Mentoring
  • Creating a Network of Experts

For more information please contact the committee at wiaeurope.uk@gmail.com.


UK Local Group Committee: Charlotte Blake-Kerry, Clare McNamara, Karen Rogers, Kerry Sanz, Laura Bocarro, Liz Cox, Mamatha Maheshwarappa, Wendy Holt.

Local group coordinator: Elizabeth Seward
