Until Sept 28, 2021 the directory has 348 responses (336 public).

The Global Women in Herpetology organizers are compiling this directory and providing a space to share the information.

The data presented is self-reported and has not been curated by the organizers..

What are our goals with this directory?

1) To promote collaborations with and among women

2) To provide a platform to increase the visibility and online presence for women herpetologist around the world.

3) To compile in one place the incredible efforts towards diversity and equity by women in herpetology around the world.

How does the form works? 

We will collect the email as a reference, but only the email you provide in section 2 of this form will be made public.

All the information requested is VOLUNTARY. However if you clicked YES to make public the information, all the information you provide in the next sections will be public in the website. 


The form takes around 15 min and only takes one answer per email to avoid duplicates.

Where is the directory going to be published?

The directory will be in a database format in a google excel file (view only) that can be downloaded. This will allow users to filter and search based on country, continent, career stage, field of study etc.

The directory will also be published as profiles in the website with pictures and direct links. However due to the large response we are still working on uploading all the data to the website. So far we have 345 entries and counting! We will let you know when this section of the directory is ready! Thank you so much for your participation and your patience.

When will my information be available in the website?

The large database will be uploaded once a month and the profiles are a work in progress.


If you have any question or if there is any mistake in your data please send us an email to womeninherpetology[at]gmail[dot]com and we will be happy to fix it!
