Field Notes: Volume 2, Issue 2

Dear Friends,

Tomorrow, International Women’s Day will raise a call to action to create a better-balancedworld and accelerate gender parity. We approach achieving that balance for women in science and exploration by showcasing their work through awards, lectures, expedition reports, interactive conversations and more. The more we talk about women’s contributions to scientific knowledge and advancements, the more their presence in these fields will be normalized. Our goal is to one day put ourselves out of business. Can you help us spread the word by forwarding this newsletter to at least one other person?

Happy International Women's Day! We'll see you on the trail, at the designation and beyond.

All the best,

Yael Jekogian
Managing Director
