The European GNSS Agency – GSA celebrated today the International Women’s Day 2019, and all the women working on GNSS, with a long news on its website aiming to inspire others both in the field and beyond. Our Navigation Technologies Area was presented among the success stories! An extract from the news:
“Being female engineers is a challenge and a great opportunity at the same time. When we started at university we as women were always a minority, and today we represent 40% of the people in our research group and two of us are responsible for a research unit. However, this situation is far from standard; to say it in engineering language: we are on the queue of the Gaussian distribution! To add a challenge to a challenge, most of us are also mothers” said Gabriella Povero, Emanuela Falletti, Beatrice Motella, Micaela Troglia Gamba, Navigation Technologies at Fondazione LINKS.
