Join physician and amateur photographer Dr. Kristin Mitchell as she shares stunning photographs of her journey to Antartica.
March 21 6pm Kenai Fine Art Center
In 2017, local physician Kristin Mitchell, MD participated in a panel about women in science at the Kenai Fine Arts Center, and learned about a transformative leadership program for women in STEMM fields. She applied and was selected to participate in the Homeward Bound program, a leadership program building a global network of 1000 women in STEMM to lead and influence decision making as it shapes our planet.
Homeward Bound situates the culmination of the year-long leadership development program in the remote Antarctic peninsula because Antarctica, like the Arctic, is experiencing climate change at a more rapid pace than temperate parts of the planet. The isolation and challenging environment helps focus attention on the tasks of understanding the challenges of climate change and women in leadership.
Dr. Mitchell hopes to inspire her community with images and stories about the Antarctic environment. She is optimistic that we can all work together to live more lightly on this planet.
