MODERATOR

Shelli Brunswick, Chief Operating Officer at Space Foundation

Shelli Brunswick, COO of Space Foundation, brings a broad perspective and deep vision of the global space ecosystem — from a distinguished career as a space acquisition and program management leader and congressional liaison for the U.S. Air Force to her current role, including overseeing Center for Innovation and Education, Symposium 365, and Global Alliance.

Advocating for space technology innovation and entrepreneurship, Shelli collaborates with government, commercial and educational sectors on initiatives for space commerce, young professionals, teacher development, and space-inspired curriculum.

Brunswick’s work to champion the inclusion of underserved groups stems from staying true to the values instilled while she was in the military: a passion to share her journey, give back to the space community, and contribute to the development of the next-generation workforce. As a leading role model for women in space, Brunswick was selected as the 2020 Diversity and Inclusion Officer and Role Model of the Year by WomenTech Network and a Woman of Influence by the Colorado Springs Business Journal.

Brunswick speaks at organizations and events around the globe to advance space technology innovation partnerships and collaboration, chairs the Women in Aerospace (WIA) Foundation, chairs Space Entrepreneurship at Tod’Aers, and hosts the Women’s Global Gathering annually at Space Symposium. In addition, she is one of only 35 women worldwide to be selected by the United Nations as a mentor for its Space4Women program and is a World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF) senator for the United States of America. She is a founding advisory board member for NYU SPS Human Capital Analytics and Technology Program as well as a founding advisory board member for WomenTech Network.  She sits on the board of directors for Manufacturer’s Edge and the Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC.
