International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Space Flight (ISPCS)

October 12-14 // Las Cruces, New Mexico
From Pennsylvania, we’ll head out west where the NCWIT team will take part in ISPCS. This Symposium is a dialog between speakers and the audience that captures the growth and diversification of the global commercial space industry in short powerful talks. NCWIT Research Scientist Brad McClain, as well as Entrepreneurial Alliance and Pacesetters Program Director Jill Reckie will join several sessions, including:

  • WORK TEAMS-No Plan Survives First Contact // Wednesday, October 12 // 3:30 – 4:30pm
    The good news is that when bias is made conscious, it can be mitigated through effective leadership and systematic creation of an inclusive company culture.
  • The SUMMIT: The Power of Inclusion // Friday, October 14 // 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
    After many years of collaboration, Jonathan Firth of NCWIT Entrepreneurial Alliance Member Virgin Galactic (VG) and ISPCS Curator Pat Hynes saw a need for our industry to expand our behavior to devise ways that we can all embrace a more diverse and inclusive workforce. They created The SUMMIT to enable our industry to be a part of this intentional evolution. Whether you are involved in a startup or work in an established company, the challenges for work teams continue to evolve. We choose to view the challenges as opportunities to grow and continue to improve the way that we do business and interact with each other.
