Porter Sponsors Northern Lights Mentorship Program
Porter Airlines has announced it is sponsoring a new mentorship program with The Northern Lights Aero Foundation to attract and retain more women in aviation and aerospace.
“Women are generally underrepresented in aviation and aerospace. The Northern Lights Mentorship Program helps break down barriers by connecting women with mentors who know the industry and generally have a passion for what they do and want to share it with other aviation enthusiasts,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “There are many opportunities within aviation – from being a pilot, to a maintenance engineer or dispatcher – having someone to help navigate the path forward is invaluable.”
Porter’s sponsorship of the mentorship program includes funds and in-kind services for its development and design. The airline’s support of the foundation stems from its Women Soar at Porter program, which launched in 2016.
