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; (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 profile picture and 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, political or ideological view, organisation or government/regime and a profile submitted that is deemed to attempt to do so will be rejected.

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 or work (e.g. engineer, nurse, artist). 

If you do wish to promote a Polar event, specific research output, funding opportunity, organisation, or opinion, please send an email to discuss further.

All those interested in contributing a profile should email first to discuss your profile before sending a final submission.
