In celebration of Women’s History Month, Atlas continued to elevate female voices by attending the 35th Annual Women in Aviation International Conference in Orlando, Florida, and connecting with female pilots out on the flight deck.

Women in Aviation International (WAI) is dedicated to the encouragement and advancement of women in all aviation career fields, so it’s no coincidence that its annual conference takes place during Women’s History Month.

In its 35th year, this year’s conference included inspiring keynote speakers, professional development seminars, and education sessions, all focused on encouraging women to explore a career path in aviation.

Atlas Air was a contributing sponsor and hosted a well-attended and interactive Industry Briefing. 767 Captain Jenny Breaux, 747 First Officer Michelle Phalen along with the Crew Talent Acquisition Team of Kevin O’Reilly, Yovankha Untracht and Karina Guevara, spoke to career opportunities at Atlas, as well as the Company culture.

When describing key takeaways from the conference, Captain Breaux shared, “It was inspiring to be surrounded by so many like-minded women and it is abundantly clear that interest in aviation is on the rise. Thankfully, the avenues for women to pursue a career in aviation are becoming more accessible with each new day, and I am proud to work at a company that provides these opportunities, and more.”

Echoing this sentiment shared by Captain Breaux are 737 Captains Dorothea Flockenhaus and Deanna Stack.
