TERRACE, BC, Oct. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Hawkair is proud to announce the formation of its Women in Leadership Executive Development Program that supports the development of women in leadership roles within Hawkair.

"This program combines three causes that we're extremely passionate about; women in aviation, women in leadership and continuing education" said Jay Dilley President of Hawkair.  "We are grooming the next generation of Executives and are proud to be part of changing the leadership landscape."

The program is open to women in leadership roles or being considered for leadership roles within Hawkair who have been nominated and have accepted to be part of this rigorous 24-Month program.  Those selected for the program will focus on developing their own leadership style and preparing for various leadership roles within the organisation.  Through being paired with a mentor from outside of the organisation, participating in conferences, taking academic courses uniquely crafted for their situation and taking on leadership assignments the program participant gains valuable exposure to all areas of the business through theoretical and practical experiences.
