Women in Aviation & Aerospace


Speaker:  Jill Meyers, Dreams Soar, Inc.

The first woman to obtain a pilot’s license achieved that milestone 108 years ago. Yet today, despite women being 51% of the population in the U.S., they are only 6% of licensed pilots, 13% of aerospace engineers, and 2% of aircraft mechanics. Learn about the history and future of women in aviation and aerospace from Jill Meyers, pilot and aerospace engineer. Ms Meyers will also talk about the non-profit organization Dreams Soar and how she supported Shaesta Waiz’ historic solo flight around the world to inspire the next generation of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and aviation professionals.
