Women in Oceanography - Virtual Photography Exhibition

June 01 2020 @ 12:00 AM - July 31 2020 @ 11:59 PM

The virtual photography exhibition “Women in Oceanography” is an initiative of the group that develops the Outreach & Education Project called Dive into Science USP, which encourages the insertion of elementary school girls into Science, and shows the importance of Science in our daily life and for the country’s development..

The exhibition shows photographs of women, including undergraduates, graduates, postdoctoral researchers, employees and professors from the Oceanographic Institute of the University of São Paulo (IO-USP), working in laboratories, congresses and scientific expeditions. The photographs are arranged in chronological order, from 1954 to 2019, and contain the name(s) of the featured scientist(s), the year and the place.

We emphasize that this is only a small sample of the female universe of oceanographers at IO-USP, and that Oceanography is only possible due teamwork, with the collaboration and participation of all. Our main goals with this exhibition are to honor all women from different areas of Oceanography, and to draw attention to the importance of diversity in any scientific area.
