Farah Obaidullah attended the World Ocean Summit in Mexico on behalf of Women4Oceans. Summits like this are important since they bring together industry leaders, governments and ocean experts, allowing for a focussed cross disciplinary dialogue about what is happening in our oceans. Farah explains briefly why such summits can truly have an impact if they reach the people that matter - coastal and island communities, and those taking action on the ground.
In 2017, Farah attended the World Ocean Summit in Bali and called for a pledge from the Economist Group to increase female representation on their panels. Women4Oceans was pleased to see that at this year's summit women were better represented. For next year's summit, Women4Oceans calls on the Economist Group to increase their diversity.
