Women in Space

Women in Space database by the Telegraph Jobs and Career site

The Women in Space database by the Telegraph Jobs and Career site promotes careers in Aerospace and STEM industries to women.

The database helps to spread awareness in terms of employment and education. One of the key reasons the database was developed is because the UK continues to struggle to recruit a sufficient number of engineers. This resource helps spread awareness when women fall significantly behind their male counterparts in terms of employment and education in engineering, technological and scientific careers.

The site is split into two parts showing Historic Heroines and Modern Marvels with video links to a voyage and interviews.

Women in Space

The site details women who have travelled into space on missions. They all have a variety of backgrounds including military, scientific and medical.

Women in Space

Profiles include Helen Sharman, the first Briton in Space.

The Modern Marvels section provides profiles of women who work in today’s space industry with a variety of backgrounds including education, digital, law, human resources, aerodynamics, science, technology and engineering.

If you are currently working in the space industry and are not featured in the database you can get in touch with the Telegraph Jobs engineering team to be featured. They welcome you to email them your profile womeninspace@telegraph.co.uk
