“Artemis Missions x Women”
- Social Justice,
About this Project:
Historically, women were not allowed in the space program until the 1970s. Due to the rampant inequality in the past against women and the recent times of this, the impact of this inequality still harms women.
The Artemis missions empowers women by sending the first woman to the moon and generally highlighting women more so than in the past.
To help the missions' goal of fostering a love of STEM through inspiration from these missions, I created a website that is simple for many people to be able to read through it and understand how important and relevant all of this is.
Although education is an underrated tool for spreading awareness and preventing discrimination, it's a powerful one that I hope this website accomplishes.

The best piece of career advice I've ever received
Always be curious and look for curiosity in others. Craft is easily learned but not curiosity.
I am 41 years old, born and raised in Germany, married for almost 15 years and proud father of two.
Over the past 23 years, I've worked in various roles in Germany, Australia and now the US. I spent the first 4.5 years in the German Airforce and since then worked in the IT industry. I am now leading a team of 12 Technical Account Managers who are taking care of two of our most strategic customers here at Salesforce.
I love to play computer games, cooking and of course my kids. And LEGO ... :-)
The Artemis missions, especially the milestone of sending the first woman to the moon, are groundbreaking and serve as a powerful symbol of progress and inclusivity. By showcasing the achievements of women in both on-ground and in-space roles, you are providing recognition and visibility to their contributions, ultimately inspiring future generations.
Creating a website to promote the missions and their significance is an excellent strategy to foster a love for STEM and spread awareness. By designing the website to be accessible and easily understandable, you are ensuring that a wide range of people can engage with the content and comprehend its importance. This inclusivity is crucial for reaching a diverse audience and encouraging participation and interest in STEM fields.
Recognizing education as a potent tool for raising awareness and combating discrimination is absolutely correct. By leveraging the power of your website to educate visitors about the significance of the Artemis missions and the role of women, you are contributing to the broader mission of fostering equality and empowerment. The website can serve as a valuable resource for those seeking information, inspiration, and a deeper understanding of the achievements and challenges faced by women in the space program.
To further enhance your pitch, consider incorporating interactive elements into the website that can engage visitors and encourage their active participation. For example, you could include profiles or interviews with women involved in the Artemis missions, interactive timelines, or educational resources related to space exploration and STEM subjects. These elements can enhance the overall user experience and make the website a more immersive and impactful platform for learning and inspiration.
Overall, your pitch showcases a powerful initiative to celebrate women's roles in the Artemis missions and promote the importance of gender equality in the field of space exploration. By creating an accessible website that educates and inspires, you are contributing to the mission of fostering a love for STEM and empowering future generations to pursue their passions without gender-based barriers.
