As part of the Women in Aviation & Aerospace Charter’s Meet the Signatories series, members of the Charter explain why they joined the Charter, and what steps they have since taken to ensure the inclusion of women in the sectors.

Next in the series, we talk to HFW: 

Please name your organisation and explain what it does in the aviation or aerospace industry

We are HFW, a global, sector-focused law firm providing services to businesses in aerospace, commodities, construction, energy and resources, insurance and reinsurance, and shipping.

Why did you join the Women in Aviation & Aerospace Charter?

“We believe that everybody has the right to make it to the top of their field. We are delighted to support the WIAA Charter and play our part in creating a more fair and balanced industry.” – Kate Seaton, Partner

What steps are your organisation now taking to help improve gender balance in the industry?

HFW has appointed a board level diversity sponsor and we will shortly be announcing a new set of targets and detailed metrics which form the basis of our new sector specific action plans around gender diversity.
