ADVANCING WOMEN EXPLORERS IN THE FIELD

WINGS WorldQuest awards unrestricted grants to WINGS Fellows to support their quests to find solutions to global problems through bold research and exploration projects. Grants and honoraria are awarded to Women of Discovery Awardees, Flag Carriers and speakers. 

Connecting women explorers

WINGS WorldQuest serves a growing community of more than 150 Fellows and Flag Carriers by providing a platform through which they can network, share achievements and garner support for their work.

Our various events, such as our Women of Discovery Annual Gala, celebrate and showcase the ground breaking work of these women scientists and explorers, whose discoveries advance scientific inquiry, stimulate conservation, and lead to better understanding of our world.

International Fellows Forum: A gathering in New York City for WINGS Fellows to discuss their research, share findings and propose solutions to environmental and social issues with key stakeholders, foundation leaders and policy makers.

A Global Network: WINGS international community of Fellows are brought together year round through WINGS's electronic network. They connect to share stories, seek out advice, and stimulate each other's work through an ongoing ideas exchange. 

 

educational outreach

WINGS’ outreach programs provide a platform for women scientists and explorers to share their work and inspire the next generation of intrepid explorers and global problem-solvers.  WINGS sponsors seminars, workshops, and webinars with WINGS Fellows and Flag Carriers, so they can share behind the scenes aspects of their expeditions, findings, and inspirations.  

WINGS makes the stories and accomplishments of the Women of Discovery widely accessible, offering modern day role models to engage young people in science and motivate them to explore their dreams. We aim to foster awareness of the contributions of women explorers, promote interest in the sciences, introduce exciting career opportunities and inspire people to be curious, thoughtful and engaged in our world. 

WINGS WorldQuest also coordinates a limited number of requests for Fellow visits from schools and community organizations, based on availability.  For all visit requests and media inquiries, please contact Managing Director Yael Jekogian
