Join the world's

Largest pool of women in tech
Making the world better

In 2024 Elon Musk will fly the first humans to Mars. 4 years later, in 2028, the United Nations target to reach gender parity. At Impactpool, we are convinced that achieving gender parity is not rocket science; it is a piece of cake compared to travelling to Mars.

Reaching gender parity is not a problem in itself, it is the lack of sincere willingness and commitment to the goal that creates a problem. We believe the main obstacle is found in internal culture, resistance to change, strong incentives to preserve status quo and lame ambitions and willingness to really achieve the goal.

Impactpool is the world's fastest growing social career site and we take gender parity seriously. One area where women in all time has been hindered or faced challenges to advance a career is tech. With this campaign we are determined to change that pattern. We have lined up the most credible organizations in the world and together we invite you to join our women in tech pool. You join the pool and organizations will be able to find you when there is a match and need.

If Elon Musk can fly to Mars in 6 years time, we can collectively reach gender parity in 2 years, but only if we all want it...

Make your next career move a smart one and support European aviation at EUROCONTROL

What is EUROCONTROL?

Established in 1960 and headquartered in Brussels, EUROCONTROL is an intergovernmental organisation with 41 Member States and two Special Agreement States. As a technical organisation, we are committed to building, together with our partners, a Single European Sky which will deliver the air traffic management (ATM) performance required for the twenty-first century and beyond.

Our staff complement is made up of over 1,900 highly qualified professionals, spread over four sites (Brussels, Maastricht, Brétigny and Luxembourg), deploying their expertise to address ATM challenges.

Areas of work

Expertise 1 0974ce4d4dfacc0266db8f47ae7157f1da269e0426859c3725f224ecda89edb9

Airspace management and organisation: We work with the European Commission, Member States and the aviation community to develop an improved route network over Europe’s busy skies, so that flights can get to their destinations more directly, thereby saving time, fuel and money.

Air traffic control: Our Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre provides safe, cost-effective air traffic services in the upper airspace above 24,500 feet over Benelux and north-west Germany, controlling some 1.8 million flights a year in some of the world's most dense and complex airspace.

Expertise 2 5a3d1747f12d506e767c314ce951eead58f570341b2108a35e167bb179637e71

Air traffic flow and capacity management: Through the EUROCONTROL Network Manager, we aim to balance airspace capacity with demand, optimising the efficiency and safety of air traffic for the continent’s busy skies.

Aeronautical information management: An efficient air transport system requires accurate, timely and tailored aeronautical information. We ensure that aeronautical information is provided in a global and interoperable way, while building a network-centric information system for Europe.

Expertise 3 8eff06c753caf7123947769db63fc9970842ab31df28bae4ddd1dd7f84270127

Civil-military ATM coordination: We facilitate civil-military coordination and cooperation in European air traffic management. We also help States and stakeholders implement the Single European Sky (SES) and the SESAR Programme with the goal of optimising the sharing of airspace.

Communications, navigation and surveillance: We are working on the air traffic management infrastructure of the future, to ensure a fluid exchange of information between airspace users, and to provide a harmonised and integrated common framework for the European air navigation system.

Environmental impact of aviation: We put our environmental expertise at the service of our Member States, the European Union, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the wider aviation community to help measure, monitor and mitigate the impact of aviation on the environment.

Expertise 4 06e97f547e2b93a2e7b21227de108f9701e620fe8116ddd7c740b2b97cf93349

Economics and business cases: By developing business cases and cost-benefit analyses, we provide valuable economic analysis tools for airspace users, air navigation service providers, airports, military users and major aviation decision-makers.

Human performance in ATM: We analyse the various elements which can influence people’s ability to complete tasks successfully. Our main goal is to align organisational objectives with human needs to build an effective, efficient and safe air traffic management system.

Safety: With our safety management activities, we support pan-European air navigation service providers in their efforts to keep air-traffic-management-induced incidents to a minimum, while ensuring that safety enhancements are in line with European regulations.

Expertise 5 35a7f8f210038cd0d64523ecaae98fed3428b5876844b94f5b2faa93c86b4366

Simulations: We offer a full set of simulation platforms covering all phases of flight, from en-route air traffic control to TMA, including airports, the EUROCONTROL Network Management function, and even the cockpit side.

Statistics and forecasts: We regularly publish statistics, forecasts, reports and studies on air traffic trends and delays in Europe. We monitor and analyse progress made by the air transport industry.

Training: We deliver quality training in air traffic management to a variety of actors in the aviation community. A wide range of training services and products is delivered, from general introductory courses on air traffic management concepts to advanced operational training.

Reaping the advantages of a diverse and gender-balanced workplace

Opinion 1 165eefc4a1757bae5a88032a6d82a4911475b6b2fabd16a63882ef606cb1a1b0

Organisations need to be in tune with changes in society if they are to thrive and succeed. Nowadays, the social and business benefits of a gender-balanced diverse and inclusive workplace are not contested, but with the female percentage of the workforce at EUROCONTROL comprising only 27%, we know we still have a long way to go. We in the aviation sector recognise the need for change and have started to send out a number of strong signals. In our field, a key driver of change was the roll-out of a EUROCONTROL Diversity & Inclusion Policy, focusing initially on gender diversity. We sponsor, take part in and fully support related initiatives initiated by our partners and stakeholders. We subscribe to the launching by the European Commission of the Women in Transport – EU Platform for Change and signed the EU Declaration on equal opportunities for women and men in the transport sector. We also support ICAO’s efforts to achieve gender equality in the aviation sector.

The Platform for Change initiative also enables stakeholders to make their individual endeavours more widely known and to share their good practices. Read the full article here.
