June 19, 2013 - Women will have the opportunity to empower themselves at the first WomenVenture Power Lunch, set for 11:15 a.m. on Friday, August 2, at Theater in the Woods - immediately following the annual group photo on Phillips 66 Plaza.
Sponsored by EAA, Women in Aviation International, and DTC Duat, the WomenVenture Power Lunch will give women of all ages the opportunity to mix and mingle fellow aviators and enthusiasts sharing their experiences, and hear from two distinguished speakers motivating you with their success stories: Z. Nagin Cox, spacecraft systems engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Sherry Carbary, vice president of flight services at Boeing Corporation.
Tickets are $5 but space is limited, so be sure to register in advance. If still available, registration may also be done at the EAA Welcome Center during the week leading up to the event.
Also at the inaugural Power Lunch, the Ninety-Nines will award its Karen Johnson Solo Scholarship to two young, aspiring female aviators between the ages of 16 and 20. (There's still time to apply for this great scholarship, but hurry - deadline is July 1.)
After the luncheon, young women enrolled in the Women Soar You Soar program get their chance to participate in their first round of hands-on AirVenture workshops - a new addition to this year's program.
