Empowering Women in Aviation: Soaring to New Heights Together

The Event

Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 aims to provide women with equal opportunities across all economic sectors by emphasizing that a prosperous, contemporary nation must empower and inspire all members of society.


At the Women in Aviation (Middle East) General Assembly in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, over 500 attendees will discuss how women can contribute to the Kingdom’s massive aviation expansion and create thousands of new jobs for women across the Middle East. This assembly will provide a platform for women to network, share experiences, and learn from one another. It will also highlight the achievements of women in aviation and encourage more women to pursue careers in this field.


With a focus on promoting gender diversity and inclusivity, the event will feature keynote speakers, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. It will also support Saudi efforts to create a diverse local workforce to promote its future aviation growth.
