On the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2021, i worked with five women scientists to showcase their accomplishments in the field of deep-sea research for the International Seabed Authority (ISA).

Between 2010 and 2020, 420 individuals benefited from ISA capacity-building programmes and initiatives. 180 were women. This initiative is part of ISA’s efforts to raise awareness and inspire more women from developing States to apply for capacity-building programmes.
