Susan Steele will speak at the ‘Women and the Sea’ symposium on Friday 25th September, under the title: ‘not just mermaids, the waves that women can create’.
“When we cry, our tears as they run down our faces are salty and the same composition as the sea. For most of us, there is an inexorable feeling of belonging when we are by the sea. Translating that passion and belonging into a career by the sea is a dream of more than mermaids. I will speak of my own journey found through passion for marine biology at the age of three, through roles working in universities, for BIM and currently as chair of the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority.”
