Organization Information

Mission Statement

Our mission is to increase visibility, increase awareness, and increase the number of female Asian pilots, aerospace engineers, and female Asians in STEM.

Description

Asian Women in Aerospace and Aviation Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization was founded by Anh-Thu Nguyen to encourage the participation of Asian girls in aerospace and aviation. Having inspired 25 million people worldwide, we want to continue helping young girls nourish their dreams in reaching for the sky, where they can be empowered and their potentials realized.

At the same time, only 5% of all pilots and only about 13% of all U.S. aerospace engineering graduates are women. The number of Asian women, however, is less than 0.5%. These low percentages have surprisingly been consistent over the last century. Overcoming the underrepresented Asian female aerospace engineers and the expected imminent shortage of pilots offers a huge opportunity to increase the number of Asian women in aerospace and aviation.
