About Women in Ocean Science CIC

Women in Ocean Science CIC is a non-profit organisation that tackles gendered issues in marine science and conservation to empower women to thrive in ocean-related careers.

Since 2018, WOS has worked to close the gender gap through education, celebration and empowerment, highlighting the intrinsic link between the need to protect the ocean and the need for a diverse, inclusive workforce of those working to protect it.
