  • EWI Fellows complete mid-tour review

    Kicking off the new year, the 71st class of Air Force Education With Industry (EWI) Fellows gathered in Orlando, Florida to share their company experiences with leadership from Air Force Acquisition (SAF/AQH and SAF/AQX), Manpower, Personnel and Services (HAF/A1D), Air Force Institute of Technology, and the Air Force Personnel Center as part of their DoD mandated Mid Tour Review. Among the program’s strongest partners, Loews Hotels has hosted the EWI Mid Tour Review as they have for the past 16 years. The current class, comprised of 61 officers, enlisted, and civilians, traveled from 20 states to share their lessons learned and insight from industry. These fellows brought a myriad of perspectives representing 17 Air Force career fields, embedded and working at 39 different companies. The company partners range from traditional DoD, non-traditional, Fortune 500, private equity firms, small business, and national laboratories – all providing unique viewpoints unavailable without this vital program. In a direct response to the SECAF and CSAF’s top priority of developing strong innovative Air Force leaders, each EWI Fellow will return to the Air Force with an exclusive perspective, industrial insight, and practiced business acumen at the end of the 10 month program.
