Join API’s Sheryl Barden and Jennifer Pickerel at the IAWA 2019 General Aviation Leadership Summit in Napa, California.

On May 6 at 3:30 p.m., during a panel discussion titled “Leading Today and in the Future,” Sheryl will discuss how aviation organizations can successfully hire, retain, and expand the roles of women in general aviation and the skills that women need to possess and develop in order to lead.

With five generations in the workforce (Gen Z, Millennial, Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y), how do we cooperate, collaborate and prepare the next generation of leaders in our industry?
