De Havilland Aircraft of Canada has launched a new program with the not-for-profit organization Women in Aerospace Canada (WIA-Canada) to advance career development opportunities for women across the company and Canada’s aerospace sector.

The Women in Aerospace at De Havilland Canada program is a six-month development initiative that will see its first participants undertake leadership, mentorship, and skills-development activities.

Under the new program, an initial cohort of women from across De Havilland Canada’s Calgary, Victoria, and Toronto offices will participate in training and ongoing mentorship with executive team members. In addition, the program features in-person events, exposure to experts, and dedicated funding for each participant to engage in self-directed learning.

“WIA-Canada is dedicated to supporting aerospace companies in their efforts to expand career opportunities for women,” said Nancy Barber, president of WIA Canada and De Havilland Canada executive member. “Our industry has so many talented women professionals who are making a difference, and Canadian aerospace will be better when more are in leadership positions. We are thrilled to be partnering with De Havilland Canada and commend them on their strong commitment to the WIA Program. ”
