“The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too!” returns Oct. 2-3 to the Abbotsford International Airport after its year-long hiatus.
Volunteers are needed for this gender diversity outreach event for aviation in Abbotsford, BC.
“The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too!” bills itself as the largest gender diversity outreach event of its kind in aviation, aerospace, marine and defence. Everyone is welcome regardless of age, gender or citizenship and no registration is required to participate. The event is completely free to ensure there are no barriers to participation, thanks to the generous support of agency, industry, education, and other community partners.
This annual Canadian event showcases an international partnership between Canada and the United States towards the improvement of gender and cultural diversity in high-tech STEM fields.
The Canadian and U.S. Coast Guard, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Municipal Police Forces, local and international Search and Rescue Organizations, first responders, civilian companies, educational Institutions, the United States and Canadian Armed Forces are all invited to participate and showcase the various aspects of Aviation, Aerospace, Marine and Defence. The combined represented assets of these agencies totalled over a billion dollars in 2019.
The event is organized by The Achieve Anything Foundation – a federally incorporated not-for-profit with a mission to inspire female future leaders from shop floor to top floor in high-tech STEM fields. The Foundation also offers incredible hands-on experience events in the native environments of agency and industry partners under a program called Operation: This IS You!
