Based in Jacksonville Florida, The Milieux Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and outreach program dedicated to increasing awareness and improving access to opportunities in aviation for girls and boys. With 52% of our population being women, it is not logical that percentages of women in the military have stayed the same (18-20%) since 2005, and percentages of women in aviation have decreased (hovering at 5%). We link these issues to lack of access and societal perceptions of occupational danger and exclusivity – which is hardly ever true! We aim to create community, discover obstacles and advocate for #sistersinservice #womeninaviation #minoritiesinservice for those passionate about creating change. We hope you join us!
Carrie Zimmerman and Jenn Aupke are the co-founders of The Milieux Project, Inc. We have given speeches around the world on how to improve team performance as well as what it takes to be an operator in a high risk environment like combat. Contact us for mentorship and/or motivational speaking opportunities!
