On October 26, 2016, the 2016 Women of Discovery Awardees presented their research and life’s work at the WINGS Fellows Forum at The Explorers Club. The honorees also held panel discussion to discuss the state of women in science. 2015-2016 Flag Carriers Ann Bancroft, Susan Eaton, Sophie Faustine Hollingsworth, Becca Peixotto, and Karen Strier shared their flag expeditions with the audience. After the public session, the new Fellows and Flag Carriers held a discussion with the WINGS Board to strategize the role that organizations like WINGS can play in achieving positive change for women in science and exploration.
