Advancing Women in
Space Exploration

Women in Space Exploration (WiSE) is a SPROS project that aims to assist women and girls all over the world in unlocking their access to space technology, education and professions. Traditionally, space has been a male-dominated field where women make up less than 20 percent of the workforce. This disparity exists in most STEM fields and at all levels and responsibilities, and it is especially reflected at higher echelons and in leadership positions. It is now more important than ever to inspire girls and women to break down the barriers to pursue STEM education and explore opportunities and careers in the space sector.

I don’t know why I always liked aerospace engineering. I was in the 10th grade when I figured that’s what I wanted to do.
