Field Notes: Volume 2, Issue 3

Dear Friends,

On April 23, 2019, WINGS WorldQuest inducted four new Fellows at the Women of Discovery Awards. Mandë Holford, Krithi Karanth, Laly Lichtenfeld, and Darlene Lim awed and inspired us with stories about their research, exploration, conservation and community initiatives, and thoughts on women and leadership. Thank you to all who attended and supported.

You can now check out their virtual trading cards on the WINGS website.

They join an international community of 84 WINGS Fellows, and now this network of womenfield scientists is enriched by their contributions, questions and interjections to the ongoing conversation that WINGS enables and fortifies. They strengthen WINGS’ foundation and outlook for future Women of Discovery.

All the best,

Yael Jekogian
Managing Director

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
