Pathfinders: First Women of the Explorers Club

You are invited to a 2-day symposium on November 5-6, 2021

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of women elected to The Explorers Club, monthly programs featuring women members will continue through 2021, amplifying the diverse accomplishments of our women membership that now exceeds 800 remarkable women.  Inspired by the results of a survey sent to women members, we are planning a fall symposium on November 5-6, Pathfinders: Women of the Explorers Club.

Respondents sent a clear message that they had joined the Club, in part, to meet other amazing, like-minded members like yourselves— here is your chance to do that! The weekend will feature members-only breakout rooms, chats, and two days of 10-minute public lectures broadcast on, Facebook Live and YouTube.

Interested in presenting? If you would like to apply to give a virtual lecture, please click on the link below. Presentations can be pre-taped or live over Zoom. Should the Club be open, we may also have a gathering.


Due by August 1, 2021 

Mark your calendars for November 5-6, 2021, and get ready to explore our planet and interact with our women membership during this exciting event.
