Today I met the team of women I’m heading to Antarctica with. What a line-up… I’m overwhelmed! #TEAMHB2018
We’ve had two online meetings so far and more are scheduled for the coming months. These calls are a great way to meet everyone and bring the project to life but the release of the participant details this week has been the biggest milestone for me, so far. Now I have a feel for the full team and I am truly astounded by the calibre of these individuals. Their biographies are testament to the courage, intelligence, commitment, passion and enthusiasm that each and everyone of these 70 women possess.
These inspirational women come from 13 countries including Spain, Venezuela, Kenya, France, Italy, Norway, Australia and China and their expertise is vast; we’ve veterinarians, marine ecologists, engineers, researchers, academics, chemists, science communicators, doctors and more. Most importantly, these women are united around the need for females to be part of decision making for the future of our world.
I am truly honoured to be part of this project and more excited than ever to be sailing with this amazing team in 292 days…!
