27 October 2021
The RAeS is delighted to be hosting a Zoom event to celebrate the success of the alta mentoring platform, a collaboration between the Society, Airbus, Royal Air Force, University of the West of England and Little Blue Private Jets, to mark National Mentoring Day 2021.
The event will take place from 16.00-17.00 (BST), Wednesday 27 October, via Zoom, with a talk by Judith Milne, one of the founding members of alta and the founder of her own private jet business, also consulting throughout the aviation industry on business development, diversity and planning.
Judith’s talk will focus upon why she decided to become a mentor for other women, her early experiences of mentoring, challenges along the way and how she has helped other women through mentoring. Judith will also talk about what she has learnt from mentoring, the successes, the impact mentoring has had on her own career and the power of female networks.
We will also hear from Alessandra Badino, a founding member of alta and Head of Sustainability & Environment for Airbus in the UK with over twenty years’ experience in the industry, and Erika Ramos, a research engineer at Airbus currently leading innovative developments in commercial aircraft manufacturing processes.
Alessandra and Erika have been in a mentoring relationship for a couple of years and will bring a testimonial about their experiences of alta so far.
There will also be time for all mentees and mentors to share their experiences of mentoring to date such as successes, challenges, the impact of Covid and anything we can do better to improve alta in the coming months.
We will be using Zoom so that attendees can interact as much or as little as they wish.
The event is free to attend and open to existing alta users and any women in aerospace and aviation who are interested in joining the programme as a mentee or mentor.
