The Women in the Arctic and Antarctic initiative promotes networking and information sharing among Polar researchers and knowledge holders. To have a profile featured on the website you need to: (1) identify as a women (or gender non-binary); (2) be actively involved in Polar research (e.g. an academic, think tank researcher, research institute member) or some aspect of Polar representation (e.g. an elder, or a representative of an Indigenous peoples organisation, NGO or some level of government); (3) be open to contributing a profile which includes a picture, an outline about yourself and your Polar work; and (4) be open to contributing contact information that may result in correspondence, preferably an email address and some form of social media and/or work website information.
Profiles are not to be used to advocate for, or endorse, a product, organisation or government/regime and a profile submitted that is deemed to attempt to do so will be rejected.
If you do wish to promote a Polar event, opportunity or organisation, please send an email to discuss further.
Profiles are meant to introduce people and their work to a wider audience and foster networking. As a general rule, if you are an academic or Polar researcher, a minimum is that you will be working on your PhD to be featured, though this is open to discussion depending on things like relevant work history and area of study.
All those interested in contributing a profile should email first before sending a submission.
