A FOCUS ON WOMEN & SHARKS
Women in Shark Science is a SASC flagship program.
SASC is passionate about training young women pursuing careers in STEM. Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) remain male-dominated fields. But we are working to change how women are represented in marine science.
Each year we hold a global competition and select 7 promising young women to join our team for 1-month of focused training. In November these incredible women fly to South Africa and learn what it means to be a woman in the field.
Leading up to November, competition winners takeover our social media channel, engage with people around the world and change perceptions about sharks.
