How far have we come in achieving Gender equality in the Global Weather enterprise?


Seven women discuss their work and life experiences in meteorology and related fields. They review the progress or lack thereof made during the past three decades in efforts to create gender balance and equality in the global weather enterprise – how far have we come? How far do we still have to go?
