March 25, 2021
Alexandra Rose, Science Editor, Professional Photographer and Diver, Ocean Geographic Magazine and Blue Ring
In celebration of Women's History Month, guest speaker Alexandra Rose is dedicated to protecting our world's most precious marine habitats through diving, writing, photography, education, and research. She is Science Editor for Ocean Geographic Magazine, Managing Editor for Ocean Geographic Explorers, founder of Blue Ring, as well as a professional photographer, violinist, Explorers Club Fellow, and PADI Divemaster. She will discuss how maximizing and leveraging the experiences we gain through travel can illuminate, inspire, and generate change. "Pictures have the power to convince the unconvinced, the ways we tell our stories can have major impacts on the people around us," says Rose. This year marks only the 40th anniversary of women being accepted in the Explorers Club, an international multidisciplinary professional society dedicated to exploration founded in 1904. Rose says, "In four decades, hundreds of incredible women around the world have been recognized as members and fellows, and it's an honor and responsibility for me to continue advancing this legacy."
