Due to COVID-19 and social distancing rules, we have made the tough decision to cancel our 2020 Inspire Gala. We hope to see you all in 2021!


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.

This year we are featuring eight women in aviation by sharing their stories with you. These women include a fighter jet pilot, a helicopter pilot, an aviation lawyer, an aviation business owner, and even a civil astronaut! This is an event for everyone – inside or outside of aviation. The inspirational stories, combined with loads of entertainment and incredible raffle and auction prizes make our event a must attend!

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 ending the looming industry shortage, provide women with step-by-step guidance to achieve economic security, and close the gender gap in the male dominated industry.

This years event saw an amazing crowd of 400 guests from a wide range of industries and professions, where we managed to raise over $46,000.
