At the Global Aerospace Summit this year in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, the growing presence of women in the aerospace and defense fields will be a focus. The conference will highlight both success stories and remaining challenges to women's advancement. "In a largely male business, women provide unique perspectives to industry issues," said Marion Blakey, president and CEO of Aerospace Industries Association, and a delegation leader at the April summit. "As the industry adjusts to worldwide economic and political change, we are now seeing women assuming greater and more visible roles."
