We are holding the inaugural ADS Women in Aerospace and Defence Summit for our members as part of our commitment to promoting greater diversity in our sectors. We invite those in apprenticeships and early careers through to leaders in our sectors to join us for an afternoon of inspiration and celebration. 

The event will showcase the value of women and diversity to our industries, provide future leaders with a platform to share their vision, engage with role models and give attendees the chance to network.  

With a great range of speakers, the event promises to be an insightful and inspiring experience for those attending.
