She is an advocate for gender diversity in the air cargo industry and chaired a panel at the AirCargo event, focused on supporting the professional development of women in company structures.

“I am going to continue championing women in the industry through AfA, and I will continue to be part of the AfA planning committee.

Goodman’s time on the AfA board termed out at the end of 2022, but she has remained an active AfA member, continuing to take a leading role in its Annual General Meeting planning committee.

“Women need to be supported in this industry and people in authority need to do everything they can to help women drive the industry forward,” said Gregory.

Panelists told women at the event that it was vital to play to personal strengths, become corporately aware, and believe that you belong in the boardroom.

There was also a strong call for more mentors to help women to rise up the corporate ladder.

“Know yourself, know your brand and worth, and understand that you need to be confident,” said Goodman.

“Don’t fall into the trap of not knowing what you want to be and articulate it in a calm manner.”
