Network Activities: The Space4Women Network is an exciting platform to share best practices and lessons learned from developing the largest Fellowship for women and gender minorities in aerospace. In addition to serving as a mentor for 154 Brooke Owens Fellows and alumni, I look forward to connecting these extraordinary women to my Network colleagues thereby growing our active community and enhancing international cooperation in advancing women in aerospace. I will continue to work with aerospace leaders on expanding their commitment to mentoring young women and look forward to leveraging this international community to recruit the next generation of extraordinary "Brookies".
