SITA highlights innovation with women leaders in aviation

Location: Mexico
28 February 2018

Global IT leader provides career opportunity and growth for women throughout Latin America

At age 17, SITA CEO Barbara Dalibard aspired to be a mathematician despite being outnumbered in a classroom comprised mostly of men. Today, with a master's degree in mathematics as well as in science and engineering and more than 30 years of experience in technology, Dalibard holds the highest position in SITA, a global provider of IT and communications for the air transport industry.

Women, in fact, comprise a number of senior positions within SITA, both globally and regionally. Most recently, SITA appointed telecommunications executive Diana Einterz as President of the Americas region, leading the strategy to develop and deliver technology solutions to hundreds of airlines, airports and governments across the region. Diana comes from Orange Business Services (OBS), a key SITA partner, where she was Executive Vice President of the main customer division in France.

The International Aviation Women’s Association (IAWA) is holding its Annual Latin America and Caribbean Forum on Women Aviation Leaders (EMLA) in Mexico City this week. This event aims to encourage the development of women in the aerospace and aviation industries and to motivate new generations of women to become part of these industries, as only three percent of airline industry management positions in Latin America are currently held by women.  

Zarya Bravo, Senior Business Development Manager at SITA and conference speaker, highlighted SITA’s leadership in driving innovation throughout the air transport industry as well as SITA’s culture of developing and providing opportunities for all people.  Bravo said: “It gives me great satisfaction to work for a global company that appreciates diversity and offers the opportunity for women like me to demonstrate our ability and develop professionally.”

To promote discussion on women in the aviation industry across Latin America, and to recognize the pioneers who have contributed to this sector, SITA is sponsoring the EMLA conference, which takes place February 28 at the Marquis Reforma hotel in Mexico City. This seminar is intended for government authorities and women from various aviation-related fields, such as pilots, aeronautical mechanics and maintenance technicians, entrepreneurs, airport managers, engineers and instructors, among others.

In SITA there are 1,076 women globally, of which 331 are in the Americas. Of that portion, 9% are based in Latin America and hold senior positions.
