International Women's Day with Pilot Lola Reid Allin | March 8, 2024 | 3:00pm | Gallery 1

Celebrate International Women’s Day 2024 with us! Belleville Public Library is excited to host trailblazing aviation professional Lola Reid Allin for a special presentation, Highway to the Sky: Women in Aviation.

Airplanes and adventure have captivated men —and women—for centuries. Despite this shared passion, men dominate the industry as airline pilots, flight instructors, maintenance and aerospace engineers, and in management positions. Discover the origins of this imbalance and why it persists, and learn how YOU can become a pilot and be part of the sea change currently happening in aviation and other STEM careers.

Lola Reid Allin Is a Commercial Airline Transport Pilot, Flight Instructor, Scuba Dive Master, and an award-winning author and photographer whose work has appeared in many notable publications (in print & online) including National Post, Globe & Mail, and National Geographic, and in national and international juried shows. Lola’s professional aviation affiliations include Women in Aviation International, The 99s: International Organization of Women Pilots, and the Northern Lights Aero Foundation.
