Celebrating International Women’s Day with our new partner, Inner Wheel

Theme this year BREAK THE BIAS – Gender Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.

Stronger Women, Strong World, Empowerment, Growth, Inspire, promoting friendship Nationally and Internationally – all of these are Aims and Objectives of 2 prominent International Women’s Organisations. Women’s World Gliding and the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs GB&I D7 have formed a working partnership agreement to put on the Women’s World Gliding Championships and Public Events from the 13th to the 27th of August 2022 at Husband Bosworth’s Gliding Club UK LE17 6JJ.

Forty-six female pilots and their teams from 11 countries will be competing at the Championships.  Both organisations saw the opportunity to utilise their varied skills to put on a great event that will inspire women for the future. Women pilots are an example to young girls, the experience of flying allows them to grow, to gain confidence, resilience and build self esteem.

Working together we have a program of events in Schools, Communities and Sport Venues leading up to the Championships, where girls can access information on sports and careers not usually perceived as female roles for example engineering, aeronautics and science based industries.

Following the event it is important to both partners that a sustainable legacy is in place to educate, highlight opportunities and encourage friendship through sport S.T.E.M activities and Community events.
