Women of the ARCTIC: Bridging Policy, Research & Lived Experience
University of Helsinki will house a non-academic side event, “Women of the Arctic: Bridging Policy, Research, and Lived Experience”, as a part of the UArctic Congress 2018.
“Women of the Arctic” seeks to carve out a non-academic space for women and girls who work on or live in the Arctic to explore the roles and contributions of women to northern policy-making, research, exploration, art, activism, and daily life.
As the Arctic conference landscape continues to grow steadily, initiatives focusing on Arctic women specifically – the successes they achieve and the challenges they face – remain few and far between. “Women of the Arctic” seeks to fill this critical gap and reach beyond the academic sphere to illuminate the stories and perspectives of a broad range of women. Ultimately, the objective is to create an awareness of, and promote a continued focus on, issues relating to northern women and non-Arctic women who engage with Polar realities.
