About

What comes to mind when you hear the words Polar Explorer?


Polar Impact is an inclusive network of racial & ethnic minorities and allies in the polar research community. This is a grassroots organisation run entirely by a small group of volunteers, most of whom are PhD students. 

Our mission is to support, connect, and highlight the stories of Black, Asian, Indigenous, people of color, and minority ethnic professionals in the polar research community.

We need your support on Patreon to help us: 
• Illustrate the changing image of polar explorers.
• Facilitate discussion about diversity in polar research through invited lectures, events, readings, and other resources.
• Provide support and encouragement to our community.

Your contribution will help maintain the online resources and offline career-building support for polar researchers of minoritized groups. Your contribution will also support K-12 classroom resources to inspire future polar researchers of minoritized groups.
