The Royal Air Force (RAF)
Each year, Amazing Apprenticeships does something new and exciting to mark International Women’s Day, and 2021was no exception.
In March 2021, we partnered up with the RAF to host an exclusive webinar for students, teachers and parents to celebrate the achievements of women throughout the force and to help to inspire the next generation of young women about the incredible opportunities available to them.
The webinar featured a panel of over 20 female Ambassadors – from medics to engineers to aircraftwomen to dog-handlers – along with Chief of Staff Personnel, Air Vice-Marshal Maria Byford, as the keynote speaker, who leads HR within the force managing over 35,000 staff.
Full of inspirational advice, thrilling stories of adventure and achievements and thoughtful commitments to the #ChooseToChallenge theme of the day, the impressive panel ensured an engaging afternoon and challenged all who attended to defy gender stereotypes and cliches.
Since launching the recordings of the event, the page has been viewed more than 10,000 times.
“It has been a pleasure to work with the RAF on this incredibly exciting, inspiring and insightful event for International Women’s Day. The wonderful Ambassadors and AVM Byford have helped to inspire students across the country, demonstrating their passion and love for their careers and how they strive to continue improving the world for females. We very much look forward to working with them on future projects.”
