Specialist, Talent Management and D&I, SES, Human Capital
Since I was a child I always wanted to make the world a better place. I found that travelling helped me to better understand the world, so in the beginning of my career I travelled a lot, and worked in different countries to better capture the needs of people and find impactful ways to help.
Originally from Greece, I hold a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a master’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Innovation. I joined the space sector in 2019 with my main area of focus being Diversity and Inclusion and the progression of underrepresented talent at all levels in companies. I believe patience, empathy and resilience is the way to make the world a more equal place, especially when it comes to gender equality.
Currently I am running Diversity and Inclusion projects at SES, one of them being the “equality and inclusion working groups” which won an award in 2021. We wanted to empower people to express their ideas and to create action oriented communities on D&I. I have a role in Talent Management and D&I, so now the challenge is how to incorporate processes that ensure unbiased progression and development, and looking into the People managers and employees relationship and how it was affected by the pandemic. Essentially, what is the new normal and what shift has been made into the work/life balance that affects this relationship.
Outside of SES I co-lead the Luxembourg chapter of Women in Aerospace and I am a #IamRemarkable facilitator.
