Now is the time to shape the future of the aerospace industry by utilizing and optimizing the contributions of the entire workforce. AIAA created the Diversity and Inclusion Working Group (DWG) with the aim to encourage participation and collaboration across all genders, ethnicities and races to enhance our representation of the entire industry.
