This research, which spotlighted numerous areas for growth, is leading to quantifiable change. In 2017, 47 percent of grants from the National Geographic Society were awarded to women, according to Cheryl Zook, Director of National Geographic Society’s Expand the Field initiative; Courtney Monroe, CEO of National Geographic Global Networks, pledged to achieve gender parity by 2020; and the organization’s roster of photographers is shifting. “It is refreshing, enriching, and often surprising to see things from a different perspective than your own,” says Sarah Leen, Director of Photography for National Geographic magazine.
Today, over a century after the magazine published its first photographs taken by a woman, National Geographic’s new voices share their thoughts on why diversity in storytelling is crucial, how they want the world to feel when looking at their pictures, and what aspiring photographers should know.
