The IAF Excellence in “3G” Diversity Award is intended to recognize IAF member organizations (industry, government, academia) worldwide for outstanding contributions to the fostering of “3G” (Geography, Generation, Gender) Diversity within the space sector.

This year, the NSSA was nominated for the outstanding contribution and commitment to the 3G diversity in the workforce, leadership, promotion of programs and for the exceptional drive and achievements in a short period of time due to the determination and diversity in the space community.

On this occasion, Dr Mohamed Al Aseeri, NSSA CEO, receiving the award commented: “On behalf of the National Space Science Agency of the Kingdom of Bahrain, I am extremely honored to be receiving such an award in recognition of the NSSA long-standing commitment and contributions to supporting the 3G diversity within the space sector.

Receiving this award would not have been possible without the aspirations of His Majesty the King, the wise Leadership of the government of Bahrain and the remarkable efforts and dedication of the NSSA’s team, whom have managed to place the Kingdom of Bahrain amongst the developed countries in the field of space, contributing to humanity and sciences advancements.”
