Scheduled for Thursday, April 6, from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m., at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, the Space Foundation’s first Women’s Global Gathering will be held during the final day of the 33rd Space Symposium. This motivational luncheon and networking opportunity is open to men and women, and to Symposium registrants and non-registrants. The Gathering luncheon will include a panel discussion by senior leaders who will share their insights into the important role of women in the exploration of space.

The panel moderator is Dr. Alice Bunn, Director of Policy at the UK Space Agency and member of the Space Foundation Board of Directors. The panel will include:

  • Dr. Pascale Ehrenfreund, Chair of the Executive Board, German Aerospace Center (DLR)
  • Susan Opp, President, Space & Power Sector, L3 Technologies
  • Becky Yoder, CPA, Chief Executive Officer, Surrey Satellite Technology U.S.

Host for the event will be Shelli Brunswick, Space Foundation Chief Operating Officer and Acting CEO. Brunswick is also the 2016-2017 Chair for Women in Aerospace, and an advocate for expansion of women’s opportunities in the global space community.

“The Space Foundation as an organization is passionate about promoting opportunities for women, and providing STEM education programs for young girls. To meet the challenge of space exploration, we must nurture the diversity of all our assets,” said Brunswick. “We hope you’ll join us.”
