On Thursday, 7th March, 100 Women in Finance, Dublin (“100WF”) marked International Women’s Day by inviting members and guests to a fully subscribed educational session at Avolon’s hugely impressive new office in Ballsbridge. The  event was entitled – “The Sky’s the Limit for Aviation; Will Current Headwinds Change Its Flight Path?”.
The event looked at the challenges that lies ahead for the industry and how Avolon approaches its D&I metrics for the company. Interesting and active audience participation led to a very interesting panel discussion. The event was opened by John Higgins (Chief Commercial Officer, Avolon).
