Making Space in the Space Industry With SEDS Director of Projects Nicole Chase
What does “space is for everyone” really mean? Nicole Chase tackles this question in her work. In order to make the space industry accessible for everyone, it’s important to understand what the phrase truly means.
A woman with many titles, Nicole is the director of projects for Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS), director of the student space ambassador program for The Mars Generation, and a database administrator for Made in Space. She recently submitted an abstract about the importance of young leadership in the space industry, and why it is crucial to foster an environment that young leaders thrive in. Additionally, she presented about the concept of “space is for everyone” at the SpaceUp Unconference and the Space Science in Context 2020 conference.
In this episode, we talk to Nicole about what “space is for everyone” means, how to foster young leadership, and how to make the industry an inclusive space (no pun intended) for all.
