Women in Aviation and Logistics (WAL) is urging women to sign up for its mentorship scheme that will be launched in January.

WAL said that its mentorship scheme is designed to bring the next generation of female leaders in the industry together with a mentor who can “introduce them to new ideas, help build confidence, and share knowledge and insight”.

The scheme is free to join and requires a minimum four-hour commitment over four months, with mentees asked to provide a short write-up at the end of the programme.

“The air cargo industry needs to have more female leaders and we are proud to take concrete steps to make this happen,” said Céline Hourcade, founder and managing director, Change Horizon, and co-founder, WAL.

“A more diverse air cargo industry will be stronger, more resilient and more sustainable.”

WAL will be matchmaking mentors and mentees this December ready for a January start. Mentee nominations close on December 10.

Twenty-five executives representing airlines, airports, forwarders, tech and drone companies, associations, and logistics experts have registered as mentors.

“Our mentors represent a fantastic cross section of invaluable experience and expertise, and they are ready, not only to share insight and knowledge, but also to help mentees to network and gain confidence,” said Emma Murray, founder and chief executive, Meantime Communications, and co-Founder, WAL.
