About this Event
This new industry brings the excitement of new job opportunities along with the historic burden of diversity and inclusion challenges. Can we use our past experiences to build an industry more profitable and more diverse than ever before?
Wisk Aero and the Canadian Advanced Air Mobility Consortium (CAAM), alongside 18 other organizations, warmly invite you to join us for a moderated dialogue about this new industry. How will companies fill talent shortages? What career opportunities await young people? And as we stand on the threshold of building the Advanced Air Mobility ecosystem from the ground up, how do we eradicate historic injustices and offer equal opportunity to all?
This event, as one part of an annual three part series including LGBTQ+ and indigenous peoples, strives to move this conversation forward as we build this new industry together. This is an online event featuring a keynote fireside chat followed by topical discussions on opportunities for the Advanced Air Mobility industry. Breakout discussions will be hosted by a small group of speakers, either in a traditional panel discussion or a more conversational exploratory dialogue.
Registrants will have the opportunity to submit their questions ahead of time when registering for the event as well as during the event Q&A.
Themes of this event:
→ The career opportunities upcoming for all people from all sectors
→ How inclusive design may also be profitable design
→ What lessons might be learned from traditional aviation for this new sector
→ Who benefits from having all people at the table, and why some of them aren’t yet here
