Our second Diversity in Space Careers (DISC) Conference featured a variety of talks and panels exploring the importance of diversity and how individuals and organisations can better support those around them. This was hosted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic on our streaming platform, allowing it to be accessible to students across the country. It also allowed us to bring together a diverse group of space professionals from across the globe to discuss their work, experiences, and what more needs to be done to make the space sector inclusive to all.
