AltaSea Webinars to Feature Top Female
Marine Experts

Three women known for their expertise in ocean exploration and conservation will be featured in an upcoming webinar hosted by AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles.

The Oct. 9 event will feature Dr. Carlie Wiener, the director of Communications and Engagement Strategy at the Schmidt Ocean Institute; Dr. Dawn Wright, Chief Scientist of the Environmental Systems Research Institute, and Ocean Exploration Trust Chief Operating Officer Allison Fundis.

“These remarkable women have broken the glass ceiling at the bottom of the ocean, exploring what has been traditionally a man’s domain,” said Jenny Krusoe, founding executive director of AltaSea. “Collectively, they have covered significant ground in the exploration of the vast ocean, and their careers light the path forward for the next wave.”

The event is set for noon PDT on Oct. 9. Since space is limited, guests will need to pre-register at https://altasea-project-blue.org/webinars/.

The Oct. 9 event is part of a series of webinars hosted this year by AltaSea after launching Project Blue, a digital platform seeking to educate and inspire future generations with science-based programming via webinars and live chats.
