IASC is excited to share this message/call from Polar Impact, an inclusive network of ethnic minorities & allies in the Polar Research community. The organization aims to highlight & support BAME/BIPOC individuals in polar science.
Polar Impact is looking for media publications / outlets that would like to help by doing a feature on non-white polar explorers and help change the image. If you know of any that might be interested, please do get in contact with Polar Impact founder Prem Gill!
As Polar Impact tweeted: “Whether it's as a scientist, engineer, doctor, estates manager (the list is endless!) ... please say hi! We want to update the sepia toned image of Polar Explorers!”
