AWAR STORY

Advancing Women in Aviation Roundtable (AWAR) is a non-profit corporation registered in the U.S. Our mission is to engage with CEOs and other senior executives to build awareness and develop actionable strategies to promote the development and advancement of women leaders in the aviation industry. 

We are committed to the belief that engagement with our senior male colleagues is critical to driving change for women in our business

AWAR was founded in 2015 by Amelia Anderson, the former Managing Director and Assistant Treasurer of American Airlines, and Dana Barta, Executive Director, Capital Markets, of Morgan Stanley.

AWAR’s unique, high-impact programs have become highly sought after, with our signature roundtable Leaders Luncheons in Dublin, Tokyo and Hong Kong and our numerous other panels and roundtable events regularly filled to capacity.

AWAR continues to be an all-volunteer, non-profit effort. In addition to our co-founders, we have also assembled an AWAR Steering Committee of highly successful aviation professionals who bring passion and strategic vision to our shared pursuit of the AWAR mission.
