Aerospace has a way to go in becoming a welcoming environment for women, says a new report.
 
A survey by Korn Ferry of over 1,500 workers in the sector found that one-third of women feel they would need to change industries to advance careers.

Just 6% thought the representation of women had increased significantly in the past five years, according to the survey, commissioned by the Women in Aviation and Aerospace Charter, a two-year-old initiative to improve gender balance.
 
“This report provides us with a measure both of what has been achieved and of what remains to be done,” said the charter.
