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 women from each one of the SGAC regions will speak about their background and professional experience, including their role within SGAC.

Alexandra Jercaianu

Alexandra is currently working as a Project Manager for Euroconsult – a consulting company fully dedicated to space and satellite vertical markets – where she works on several program development tracks for Euroconsult’s flagship event, the World Satellite Business Week (WSBW) whilst also contributing to space policy and programs consulting missions for global governmental and industry clients. Before Euroconsult, Alexandra worked as a Project Manager for Eurisy, where she focused on building bridges between space and non-space sector markets to strengthen the diffusion of satellite-derived innovation, technology, and data.  

 

Prior to switching to the space sector, she admits having never considered a professional path within this sector, nor the venues open to non-STEM academic profiles. She argues that encountering the enthusiastic and diverse global community of volunteers at SGAC has played a significant role in her decision to continue in space and motivates her to give back her skills to empower others to bring about positive change in the sector.
