08 March 2021

To create a global network of women engaged in the aerospace sector, highlighting their skills and talents to ensure gender equality and inclusion. These are the objectives promoted by Women in Aerospace in Europe (WIA-E) and espoused by Telespazio, which as from this year has become a Gold Member of the international association.  

WIA-E, founded in 2009 at the behest of Simonetta di Pippo and Claudia Kessler, forms part of the international WIA network, present in the United States where it was founded in 1985, as well as in Canada, Africa, Japan, Mexico and Costa Rica. 

The European association now features in 15 different cities where aerospace activities are concentrated, throughout the continent. In cities such as Rome, Barcelona, Toulouse, Paris and Berlin, the various groups are committed to promoting events and projects in line with the goals of the WIA-E community with a view to attracting the best professionals in the aerospace sector, regardless of their gender

In addition to Telespazio, WIA-E is supported by more than 20 industry operators, as well as by the European Space Agency and several agencies in member countries. WIA-E is also part of the important “Space for Women” project developed by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA).

Telespazio’s entry into WIA-E signifies an opportunity to reaffirm its commitment to offer its workers an increasingly inclusive and egalitarian workplace, promoting diversity and gender equality in line with the UN’s Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development goal 5. Telespazio, and the Leonardo Group as a whole, espouses wholeheartedly.
