|AsBAA, Asia’s non-profit representative body for the business and general aviation industry (BA/GA) marked International Women’s Day 2019 by looking back over 20 years of Women in Aviation at the association.|
Jenny Lau, the first female Chairperson of the association said, “AsBAA has an important role to play in representing the needs and voice of the industry. Gender equality is an essential and meaningful element of this work. Across AsBAA’s leadership, Discovery team, operational and administrative functions, we have implemented mechanisms through which women have greater opportunity and recognition in the industry. Likewise, we actively encourage our members to celebrate the successes of women. Whilst improvements are encouraging, the mid-term goal is that this becomes a non-issue. In another 20 years, I would hope that no one needs to ask, “how does it feel to be a woman working in business aviation?” Because by then, leaps forward will have been achieved and equality will be a reality. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the individuals that have helped support gender equality in our industry”.
