ABOUT THE EVENT

The current aerospace workforce is overwhelmingly white collar, male and upper middle class; and there is a public perception that to work in the space economy one must be good at math, science or a perfect physical and mental specimen – who can become an astronaut. This workforce was useful when the space economy was centered on a single organization whose mission was to push the frontiers of knowledge. Yet now that space is approaching a mainstream economic sector – there is a requirement for a workforce able to fill jobs at virtually all levels of educational attainment. With that in mind, there is a requirement for a dedicated campaign to enable educators, employers, educators, and parents to understand the full range of careers available within the space economy and what training is needed therein.
