Field Notes: Volume 1, Issue 4

Dear Friends,

One of the most exciting tasks that the WINGS WorldQuest board and I take on is choosing our next group of Women of Discovery Award winners – the extraordinary women scientists and explorers who will ultimately join our international community of 84 Fellows.

We've spent months narrowing the list down to the top candidates. This is no easy feat, given the quality and courage of these women, all of them leaders in their fields doing groundbreaking work. They represent a wide variety of disciplines and countries spanning the globe, dedicating their lives to tackling the critical issues of our time, like climate change, wildlife conservation, space exploration and ocean health.

We are still finalizing our next group of awardees, but I can already tell you that it's going to be an impressive cohort. In the meantime, I hope you'll read on to learn about the most recent updates from current Fellows and Flag Carriers.
