COLORADO SPACE BUSINESS ROUNDTABLE (CSBR) ANNOUNCES COMMITMENT TO JUST, EQUITABLE, DIVERSE, AND INCLUSIVE SPACE BY ESTABLISHING NEW J.E.D.I. SPACE COUNCIL

MARCH 8, 2022, DENVER, CO US

The Aerospace Industry is experiencing a renaissance, a new eagerness for innovation and exploration fueled by an accelerating human awareness of the importance of space to our sustainable and prosperous future. To realize this opportunity to its fullest potential we must nurture and utilize all the gifts and talents of those that share this vision.   

CSBR’s commitment is put forth by establishing a dedicated committee to focus on all areas necessary to create J.E.D.I. Space. We plan to ensure that our events and activities are inclusive, that we promote and encourage our partnerships to be just and equitable in our dealings.  We have diverse individuals that represent the best that Colorado has to offer.  To lead this effort we have asked former CSBR Chairperson, Alires Almon to lead our efforts to establish our commitment. 

“I am honored to be asked to lead this important effort. In order for Colorado to remain competitive and a leader in the aerospace industry, we must enable a J.E.D.I  Space environment. We can’t afford to turn away those who wish to contribute their talents to humanity’s greatest cause – space exploration.  I look forward to working with our CSBR Board members, their organizations and the greater aerospace community to keep us moving in the right direction and make space for all of us. ”  – Alires Almon, Chairman CSBR J.E.D.I. Space Council

The greatest journey in human history is the ongoing evolution of our awareness of who we are, the potential of where we are going, and most importantly how we get there. It is our purpose to create a J.E.D.I. Space environment as we journey into the great space frontier. We will be fearless in our mission as we rise to the challenge of difficult, yet courageous conversations. While we elevate the impact and inclusiveness of people, we will also transform our technologies’ impact on the environment and how we engender our earth for future sustainability.  

If you wish to be a part of this effort, please reach out to J.E.D.I. Council Chair , Alires Almon or CSBR Chair, Robert Cone.
