Mission: Women in Exploration’s mission is to promote the positive impacts that women have made in scientific exploration, field research, cultural learning, sustainability, and animal welfare.


Founded: In March of 2020, Amanda Fornal launched Women in Exploration. Amanda is an advocate for equality, supporter of animal rights, a tech professional, an explorer, and a Fellow of The Explorers Club. She created the site to be a catalyst for conversations as well as to promote the countless efforts of women and girls to make our world a better place. She hopes that highlighting these achievements will inspire more positive advancements and learning.
