Women Leadership in Marine Technology and Science

Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO

UN Agency


This volunteer-led initiative seeks to empower women in the oceanographic research and technology fields. The panel will feature women from ocean science and marine technology, who will share their pathways (career and personal).

Directly after the panel discussion, participants will be invited to break out electronically into discussion rooms. We will discuss challenges and opportunities such as: 

- Making going to sea/working in the field equitable 

- Achieving (well, trying) a work-life balance including marriage and children

 - Reducing prejudice/stereotyping of women’s abilities

Speakers: Dr. Wendy Watson-Wright, Dr. Shakila Merchant, Dr. Deidre Gibson, Zdenka Willis

Satellite Activity time: 7 July, 7:00 - 10:00 pm CEST
