Girls With Wings, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization using women in aviation to inspire girls to achieve their full potential. The core of this outreach program is an interactive presentation to teach girls’ groups “everything” they need to know to be a pilot, the lesson being that they can do anything to which they aspire, as long as they’re willing to break it down and work hard. Although for the most part conducted at this time by the Founder of the organization, the intent is to form chapters around the country that can also present the demonstration. The demonstrations are supplemented by an interactive website, www.GirlsWithWings.com, which features several coloring pages and games as well as many bios of women in aviation stating what they do and why they love it. The goal of GWW is to let girls know of their opportunities and provide role models that are successful in their chosen STEM related (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers and/or hobbies.
