Women Who Shake Up The World To Make It Better


Five hundred (500) women from 45 countries are gathering in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. this week on a mission: to make the world better.

The International Women’s Forum (IWF) runs Wednesday through Friday, and will include top women leaders from the fields of government, business, research, innovation and science.

Here’s a snapshot of one of the women who will be honored:

Dr. Sylvia Earle (pictured), an acclaimed marine biologist, has swum with fish in just about every ocean in the world.

She’s explored miles and miles of coral reefs, scaled undersea mountains, walked untethered on the sea floor and holds the world record for the deepest underwater dive in a submersible vessel.

During her lifetime, she has spent 7,000 hours diving under the sea, a watery realm she has passionately championed for half a century.

And at 74, she is still shaking up the world about the endangered blue part of our planet.
