Claudie Haigneré is a French doctor, politician, and former astronaut with the Centre national d'études Spatiales (CNES for short) and the European Space Agency, and Ersilia Scarpetta, who has worked with the ESA since 1991, and is currently the space agency’s Chief Diversity Officer.

They discuss their passion for space, research, STEM, and diversity; the story of their careers, their views of the future of ESA and space exploration, and their thoughts on diversity in the traditionally male-dominated fields of science.

Moderated by Sarah Drinkwater.
