In conjunction with the 56th session of the UN COPUOS Scientific and Technical Subcommittee, ESPI and ESA organized an evening event dedicated to the topic "Diversity as a Growing Priority for International Organisations".
Following a keynote speech by Simonetta di Pippo, Director at UNOOSA, presentations were given by Ersilia Vaudo, Chief Diversity Officer at ESA, Amarsanaa Darisuren, Senior Gender Adviser at OSCE, and Ursula Till-Tentschert, Deputy Head of Unit Technical Assistance & Capacity Building, at EU FRA. The event, which took place at ESPI premises on 20 February, gathered more than 50 participants from the space as well as non-space community.
The diverse participation highlighted the transversal and growing importance of this topic, which extends across multiple domains and organisations both public and private. Following the presentations, the participants had the opportunity to exchange their views with the speakers during a networking buffet reception.
