To commemorate Women’s History Month as well as Diversity Month, the Diversity and Gender Equality Project Group from the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) has come up with a series of webinars to showcase women of SGAC. For each webinar, 2-3 women from each one of the SGAC regions will speak about their background and professional experience, including their role within SGAC.
