To celebrate Women’s History Month, the Our Giant Leap from the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) has come up with a series of webinars to showcase women of SGAC. For each webinar, 2 women from 2 different SGAC regions will speak about their background and professional experience, including their role within SGAC.
Join us during your lunch or coffee break and enjoy a nice 45 minutes of discussion with the panelists.
You will be able to engage with them in the chat and ask your questions.
This second episode will feature women from North and Central America & South America.
Use #AskOGL to ask all your questions before, during and after the coffee hour on social media.
