To achieve its ambitions, the Ocean Decade needs to cut across geographies, cultures and generations, and recognize and address gender disparities in ocean science for long-lasting and impactful change. Although women and non-binary persons are under-represented in ocean sciences, their accomplishments are even less represented in both print media and online.
A continued effort to ensure diversity and gender inclusiveness in ocean science is essential to unlock opportunities and foster the much-needed transformation in ocean science. This edit-a-thon will empower volunteers who want to contribute to promoting the stories and accomplishments of women and non-binary individuals in ocean science by increasing the visibility of these people online.
Speakers: Andrea White, Zdena Willis, Anya Waite, Emily Choy, Jasmin Graham, Melissa Christina Marquez, Farah Qaiser
