Through the Fellows and Flag Carrier programs, WINGS creates community and showcases the groundbreaking work of women scientists and explorers, whose discoveries advance scientific inquiry, stimulate conservation, and lead to better understanding of our world.

WINGS’ outreach programs provide a platform for women scientists and explorers to share their work and inspire the next generation of intrepid explorers and global problem-solvers. 

The WINGS network supports women scientists with unrestricted funding that is often critical and has been used for expeditions, field and office equipment, legal support, lab start-up capital and publishing. WINGS also has a unique Emergency Fund that addresses the ongoing threats women scientists and explorers face as they do their job, which we created after one of our Fellows was sexually assaulted in the field and needed immediate evacuation and medical attention.
