#IWD2021: IORA debates women in marine research with ISA, UN-OHRLLS

For International Women’s Day 2021, Acting Secretary General Dr Gunawan will join an international panel event to promote women in deep sea research. Register now.

The high-level webinar will take place at 8.30-10.00am Jamaica time (GMT-5), organised by the International Seabed Authority (ISA) and the Office of the High Representative of Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island States of the United Nations (UN-OHRLLS).

 

This webinar is organised to mark International Women’s Day and will focus on the strategic partnerships and enabling environment required to dramatically increase the participation of women in deep-sea research globally.

 

IORA is committed to empowering women in everything it does, including Academic, Science and Technology cooperation.  IORA’s past activities have included research on women in the blue economy (2015 and 2019), and women in fisheries (2019), in the Indian Ocean region.

 

“The voice and agency of women is critical to achieving the 2030 Agenda.  Women have a key role to play in conducting marine research, to improve our understanding and ability to care for the Indian Ocean,” said Acting Secretary General Dr Gunawan.

 

Registration for the webinar is available for free here.
