Planet Labs designs, builds, and launches tiny satellites that we call “Doves”. More than a hundred Doves orbit the Earth right now: they make up the world’s largest constellation of Earth-imaging satellites, capturing fresh imagery of the Earth’s surface every day.
As Planeteers we’re a mission-driven group of humanitarians, space geeks, environmentalists, inventors, curious intellectuals, passionate stewards of the earth, and most of all people who never stop exploring the endless possibilities of space. One thing we have in common: we each have a unique story that lead us to working in a space technology company like Planet.
At this panel, students can hear from Planet’s current cohort of interns and learn more about their backgrounds before coming to Planet. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn first-hand how the tech industry is becoming more accessible to people from non-traditional backgrounds.
