Women in Space

Woensdag 01 oktober 2014 // 08:00 uur

Women in the space sector are still under represented, not only in numbers but also as speakers. In 2012, the proportion of women in the European space industry was 20%, more than half of them in possession of a university diploma (ASD-Eurospace - Facts & Figures - The European Space Industry in 2012 - 17th edition, June 2013).

This woensdagmorgen.nl, organised by HE Space, focuses on women working in the aerospace sector and what they have achieved so far, and what they are doing now.

In this context, we also want to take the opportunity to highlight the upcoming Aerospace Women's day "Inspire to grow", to be held at the TU Delft on 20 November.

This will be an opportunity for women working in the industry, young professionals and students to come together to discuss different topics relevant to the space sector, to network, share experiences and for some to find a mentor.
