Jetrader: Women in Aviation
Marilyn Gan, Mary Prettyman and Mylène Scholnick are three successful leaders in the field of aviation. They also happen to be women. And while the landscape of women in the industry is broadening, aviation, like many technical fields, is dominated by men — especially at the top. The reasons for this are complex and deep-seated in our society. Women encounter roadblocks to success that their male counterparts do not. There isn’t a party to blame or a quick fix; however, there is a growing mindset that greater diversity in all industries is worth achieving. The path forward isn’t crystal clear, but women in aviation forge ahead.
