Alta is delighted to announce the second in the series of alta networking events following the launch of its new mentoring platform which went public in March 2019 and the success of its first speed mentoring evening at the Royal Aeronautical Society in May.

The aim of alta Networking events is for registered mentees and mentors who are using the platform to be able to meet up in person for a speed mentoring session as well as introduce the programme to other people who are interested in taking part in the scheme. Alta is the online mentoring platform and support programme for women in aerospace and aviation designed by women for women and aims to support the aims of the Women in Aerospace & Aviation Charter by providing a tool to support women’s career development and retention in the sector.
