New Workforce Development Group Aims High

Aviation Workforce Development (AWD), a nonprofit group dedicated to providing labor market information and career entry and development resources for the U.S. aviation industry, has launched a new website in its quest to promote aviation careers.

As all of us in the industry know, aviation faces a “perfect storm” of 21st century leadership and development issues: a large number or retirements, changing U.S. demographics, rising global market demands, technological innovations, and political and regulatory challenges. To address this storm, AWD is seeking to connect industry leaders, facilitate cross-generational bridges, encourage careers in aviation, and develop future leaders.

To that end, AWD created a new website with information about the many career options in aviation. With overviews of different career paths and links to resources, the site provides those interested in the industry with a plethora of information. In support of the new site, AWD also unveiled a new Facebook profile and LinkedIn group to encourage a dialogue about the industry’s needs and share information. In the near future, the AWD site will host a careers portal to connected interested parties with employers.

Originally launched as a consulting firm to address issues within business aviation, AWD quickly realized that the issues facing the business aviation community were prevalent within all areas of aviation. This realization prompted the group’s broader focus and gave rise to the idea of creating a platform to address workforce issues and connect young professionals to aviation.

Be sure to check out their new website and follow their activities through popular social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
