Inspire Gala

Inspire Gala

The Aviation Event of the Year

Our annual Inspire gala was held on October 1, 2022 in Edmonton, AB. The 2023 Inspire Gala date is TBA.

Inspire is a cocktail style event where we raise funds for our programs while also showcasing incredible women in the aviation industry.

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 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 2022 gala raised funds for our brand new Aviation Readiness Training programs at the Elevate Aviation Learning Centre. These programs provide essential skills training, employability training, and aviation career skills training. The programs are offered to women and underrepresented groups who are unemployed, low income, or in vulnerable situations to help them become self-sustainable and enter into an industry that provides excellent careers and room for growth and advancement.

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.
