Atlas Air hosted local chapters of Women in Aviation (WAI) at its Global Operations Center at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). Students and aviation professionals, ages seven to 81, heard from key leaders across the aviation, maintenance and supply chain industries on the many different career opportunities available to them.
This is the second year in a row Atlas has hosted WAI, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the encouragement and advancement of women in all aviation and aerospace career fields and interests.
The day included many networking opportunities for attendees, as well as tours of Atlas’ Global Control Center and the CVG campus. Guests visited the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Control Tower and the FEAM Hangar to learn more about Atlas Air’s collaboration and partnership with these organizations.
The day also included a “Power Panel” of female leaders, featuring Laverne Bowman, Senior Manager, Ground Operations, System and Development; Althea Arvin, Senior Director, Supply Chain Operations; Nancy Escobar, Manager of Stores, Material Management; Stacey Brown, Senior Director, Maintenance, Americas; Cheryl Kuebelbeck, Senior Manager, Dispatch Training; Taylor Montgomery, 767 Captain; Patricia Goodwin-Peters, Senior Vice President, Human Resources. The panelists spoke about their backgrounds, what led them to Atlas and how they navigate challenges in their field.
These events are part of the Atlas’ ongoing efforts to recruit and retain talent and invest in its current and future workforce.
