What They’re Saying

“EMER-GEN provided a remarkable opportunity to network, interact, engage, and learn by meeting some of the most distinguished people in the space field. I found the group to be very diverse and knowledgeable. EMER-GEN was a great opportunity to know how impactful, yet closely connected, the space industry is.”

Rachit Bhatia

“The mentoring session was a conference highlight for me. In fact, being put in touch with and mentored by renowned space specialists coming from the public and private sector, and NGOs, gave me a lot of energy to work harder to reach my goals.”

Fatoumata Kebe

International Astronomical Union

“EMER-GEN was one of the best experiences I ever had. I got to network with other young professionals and with the mentors as well. It was interesting to work with people from so many different backgrounds in the space industry and learn new things that I am not necessarily familiar with.”

Amber Imai-Hong

Hawaii Space Flight Laboratory

“Overall, EMER-GEN® taught me more than I expected. I feel refocused to improvement within the agency I currently work for. EMER-GEN is great because you do not learn these types of career skills in college. It is a valuable experience that I hope to be a part of again in the future.”

Kyla Edison

PISCES

“EMER-GEN® aimed to engage the participants into active debates on numerous issues in space. Merging policy and technical considerations leveraged the multifaced expertise of the cohort. The result of this far exceeded our expectations.”

Quentin Verspieren

Intelligent Space Systems Laboratory, The University of Tokyo

“For me the most important takeaway from EMER-GEN® was the inspiration I received from the mentors and the cohort. We exchanged knowledge and ideas that I can use in my current job.”
