A total of eight women participated in the interviews which provided the basis for a video series made to inspire other women to join the aerospace industry.

MONTRÉAL — Aéro Montréal together with the Palais des congrès de Montréal will unveil a series of videos about women with careers in the aerospace industry. The series was created to help inspire women in Québec to enter the aerospace industry as it seeks solutions for its labour shortage.

A statement from the Palais des congrès de Montréal indicates that the aerospace sector seeks to establish a diverse labour force and help firms implement sustainable aviation practices moving forward. They believe that by highlighting the talents and achievements of women through the video series, they will attract the next generation of women to fill positions in the industry.

The Palais des congrès de Montréal and Aéro Montréal conducted a series of interviews with women who are passionate about their careers in aerospace and who are also inclined to share their experiences in the industry with other women in the province. A total of eight women participated in the interviews which provided the basis for the video series.

“Our aerospace industry’s development and growth depend to a large extent on our capacity to attract and retain the talent of the future. Our firms know this, and are mobilizing to make diversity, inclusion and equity key levers in that development. In sharing their stories, our ambassadors are proving that the movement is already underway. They are demonstrating as well that Québec’s aerospace industry offers unique opportunities for growth, and working environments in which every woman can have a chance to realize her full potential while meeting the challenges of the future,” said Suzanne M. Benoît, president and CEO, Aéro Montréal in a statement.
