SpaceApps #EmbracesEquity for an inclusive space future
Space Applications Services is privileged to have skilled and expert women who perform valuable work for the space industry. Their efforts as part of different teams such as Operations, Science, Training, Engineering and Administration are exceptional, and contribute significantly to the success of the Company.
On Women’s Day, we salute these remarkable women for their hard work, professionalism and excellence. As we celebrate their achievements, we also recognise the courageous trailblazers who broke the glass ceiling, and amplify the call to #EmbraceEquity for women working in the space industry.
Sharing their Women’s Day messages, this is what some of them had to say.
Dr Anna Fogtman: Our Crew Exploration Scientist
The best thing about my job is working in an interdisciplinary environment that constantly pushes my boundaries and makes me learn new things! The space sector is full of enthusiastic, inspiring people and those interactions keep me curious and motivated. The cherry on top is that I help to solve challenges that will actually enable Moon exploration by Europeans.
Ms. Samiksha Mestry: Our Training Coordinator
Space Applications’s constant support and its faith in me empowered me to apply my knowledge and experience in Space Engineering and Education to design, develop and deliver trainings such as ESA Academy’s very first CubeSat Summer School. At SpaceApps, not only do I follow my passion for space and fulfil my desire to train the future workforce of the space sector, but also I get learning opportunities and support from my colleagues to grow as a professional and reach my career goals.
Dr Manuela Aguzzi: Our Training Engineer
Space Apps fosters a culture of respect where women do not feel the weight of discrimination. It is a meritocratic environment where all employees have equal opportunities and responsibilities. If you bring value, the Company valorises you.
Building a career in the space industry; embracing your passion; and working with motivated colleagues – just like Anna, Samiksha and Manuela have achieved – can be your new reality. Space Applications Services has open positions and we encourage women to apply to be a part of our teams that build innovative solutions and services for the Moon, Low Earth Orbit and Ground.
