The Aviation Event of the Year

Our annual Inspire gala is back! Inspire is a cocktail style event where we raise funds for our programs while also showcasing incredible women in the aviation industry. Our 2023 gala, held at the Aurora Jet Partners Hangar, YEG, was a huge success.

Inspire 2024

This year, our theme is focused on the sustainability of aviation. There are multiple pillars to sustainable business practices, including social, environmental, and economic elements. Our theme encompasses crucial aspects such as employee satisfaction and retention, environmental responsibility, and the imperative task of attracting and training individuals to fill the significant employment shortages that are prevalent in our industry.

Save the Date: October 19, 2024

Location: Edmonton, AB

Venue: TBA

Raising Funds For Our Programs

Each year, Inspire raises funds for our Mentorship, and Bursary programs, as well as for the Elevate Aviation Learning Centre. Every dollar raised goes back into our organization, allowing us to advance our mission to provide a platform for women and underrepresented groups to thrive and succeed through careers in aviation.

Annually, we host a crowd of 400 guests from a wide range of industries and professions.   

Women Who Inspire

The women we feature quickly become a part of the Elevate Aviation team and join the cause in raising awareness about the amazing careers available to women in aviation.

Providing a platform of support for women in the industry. After a nomination and selection process, we kick things off by spending one weekend together in the spring where Inspire features will meet and share stories with each other. Throughout that weekend we also do headshots and interviews to prepare for the October gala. This is an opportunity to build life-long friendships and networks of support across various positions throughout the industry.
