Inspire Gala

Inspire Gala

The Aviation Event of the Year

Inspire is our annual fundraising gala where we showcase incredible women in the aviation industry during our aviation-themed, cocktail style event.

Help Us Raise Funds For Our Programs

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 spread the word about careers in aviation, create more courses and training opportunities for women to achieve economic security, and close the gender gap in the male dominated industry.

Annually, we host a crowd of 400 guests from a wide range of industries and professions. Our most recent gala in 2019 raised almost $50,000! Sadly, our 2020 and 2021 gala’s were cancelled due to COVID-19. 

Our 2022 gala is October 1 in Edmonton, Alberta. We are so excited to welcome everyone back to celebrate 8 inspirational women in aviation and raise funds for our newest Elevate Aviation Learning Centre program!

Women Who Inspire

The women we feature quickly become a part of the Elevate Aviation family 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. Once the women are selected, we kick things off by spending one weekend together, sharing stories with other like-minded females, getting pampered, and relaxing. This is an opportunity to build life-long friendships and networks of support across various positions throughout the industry.
