On June 10, Forward Defense Nonresident Senior Fellow Mir Sadat spoke at an event for Aerospace titled “The space policy show: keeping the space workforce strong.” During the event, Sadat discussed the need for greater diversity and inclusion in the space workforce, and how to attract new talent to the field.
