The 20th Air Force Women’s Initiative Team conference was held at Malmstrom Air Force Base last week and featured guest speaker Maj. Gen. Michael J. Lutton, 20th Air Force commander. Due to the WIT’s efforts, a policy was signed earlier this year which allowed pregnant Airmen to volunteer to keep their flying status, and recently an additional policy was signed which protects a pregnant Airman’s rights to keep their pregnancy status confidential. “Innovators across our Force are not taking no for an answer and are finding ways to improve the quality-of-life for our Airmen, which in-turn increases our war-fighting capabilities,” said Lutton. “This hard work [by the WIT] is critical in keeping these topics in the forefront of the conversation and will lead to significant, systematic and beneficial changes in the future.”
