Each year, the national not-for-profit foundation honours outstanding Canadian women who have made a significant contribution in their field and who continue to lay the groundwork for other women to enter or excel in these industries.
The sponsorship is part of Porter’s commitment to encourage and advance women in aviation. It coincides with the launch of Women Soar at Porter, which aims to bridge the gender gap within all areas of their organization.
“Aviation is for anyone willing to work hard and with a passion for what they do,” said Robert Deluce, President and CEO of Porter Airlines. “The Northern Lights Award Foundation promotes values that are consistent with Porter’s own efforts to inspire women to pursue aviation careers.”
Announcing the new sponsorship agreement, Anna Pangrazzi, President and Director of Sales for the Northern Lights Award Foundation, said, “When it comes to women in aviation, the synergies between our two organizations make this a natural alliance. I am thrilled that Porter Airlines has partnered with us, to help us showcase the amazing contributions that women are making to the industry and to inspire other women to consider careers in aviation or aerospace. This is a significant win for the foundation and reflects our growth on a national stage.”
Porter and the Northern Lights Award Foundation will also work together to broadly promote women in aviation at the airline.
