      Event Description:
      Amelia Earhart Aerospace Summit

      The 2019 Amelia Earhart Aerospace Summit is a national, weekend-long event during Purdue's 150th anniversary year, intended to empower all students interested in a future in aerospace to learn more about career paths in industry, academia, and government, and to give them the opportunity to expand their professional network through interactions with preeminent leaders in these fields.

      In 1935, Amelia Earhart became the first counselor on careers for women at Purdue. As the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, she has emboldened women across the world with her belief that women are equal in jobs requiring intelligence, coordination, speed, coolness, and willpower, lending her name as a fitting title for an event designed to inspire women.

      The inaugural summit in 2018 was a thrilling success, and we are confident that this upcoming one, scaled up to include more events and greater participation, will be even more spectacular.
