Join Inmarsat Government at SATELLITE 2019
May 6-9, 2019 – Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC
SATELLITE unites aerospace thought leaders, entrepreneurs, executives, engineers, end-users and enthusiasts together in one place for the largest and most important global connectivity technology event of the year. For more than 38 years, SATELLITE has played a critical role in determining how satellites will shape the future of our world.
We invite you to join Inmarsat Government’s Rebecca-Cowen Hirsch, Senior Vice President, Government Policy and Strategy as she participates on the Opening General Session panel, “Our Collective Role in Empowering Women and Cultivating Diversity in Aerospace.
Supporting women and diversity in aerospace and other STEM fields is more than the right thing to do, it makes all of us better. It makes our work better. It makes our companies more innovative and profitable. Despite years of awareness, important voices and perspectives are still missing from our workforce. A diverse workforce breeds innovation and creative problem solving. We all want that, so how do we get it? From the value of mentorship to the importance of employee resource groups and diverse social groups, this roundtable discussion will be wide-ranging, and focused on identifying solutions for the audience to take back to their organizations and move the needle on diversity and inclusion. We will also demonstrate that diversity works by sharing success stories of diverse teams, technologies and architectures. Open to all attendees.
Wednesday, May 8, 2019, 8:00 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.
Ballroom C – Walter E. Washington Convention Center
