Joelle Garden, is an Aerospace Engineer and the Delivery Manager for Cambridge aviation startup SATAVIA. After completing her Masters in Aerospace Engineering, Joelle went straight into industry and after a very successful career in industry, she joined SATAVIA earlier this year.
Joelle is a science fiction geek with a brilliant imagination which inspired her to join the sector, and to work on the science of the future. Joelle grew up on three different continents and travelled a lot, so working in aerospace seems very fitting!

A sneak peek into our chat…
Why do we need more women in mobility?
Everybody uses mobility, everybody flies or drives cars yet such a small proportion of women are designers and contributors to these industries.
What difference can a diverse workforce make?
Both gender balance, and the balance of people from all walks of life allow different conversations to happen and different ideas to come together. A greater mix of people creates the environment where we could produce something completely new and make a really big impact on problems like sustainability.
Why is startup life so amazing?
“I love the fact that there is a huge mix of different disciplines that have come together to produce something that is actually of great value”.
Thanks Joelle — It’s amazing to see how much you love what you do, and how you are driving change in the industry. 🙌
