The Nordic countries have worked together for over four decades to improve gender equality in all aspects of society. Gender equality between the sexes is a condition for the success of the Nordic Model and a pillar of the modern Nordic welfare states.
WOMEN IN THE ARCTIC AND ANTARCTIC
Access barriers, such as transportation limitations, family responsibilities, geography, and funding hinder many women from participating in traditional networking. The Women in the Arctic and Antarctic initiative fosters a gender-positive environment to facilitate easily accessible international networking and information sharing.
