WIA-Europe board member Agnieszka Lukaszczyk gave a talk on the challenges of young women in the space sector at the United Nations/Chile Workshop on Space Technology Applications for Socio-Economic Benefits. The event was hosted by the Centro de Información de Recursos Naturales (CIREN) of Chile, coorganised by The International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) and NASA, in partnership with Secure World Foundation.
The overall objective of the workshop was to increase awareness among policy makers and planners on the socioeconomic benefits of utilising space technology. It had a special panel on gender equity in space sciences; from providers to decision makers and end users.
