Join us for a symposium that celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the first All-Woman Research Team in Antarctica. Led by Dr. Lois Jones, this team of four women from The Ohio State University made polar history when they went to Antarctica in 1969.

Speakers will include polar scientists, historians, explorers, and two members of the original team. The symposium will look at women’s past, present, and future in science, research, discovery, and leadership.
