She interviewed and worked with hundreds of community leaders in the Arctic to identify needs, document traditions, and secure resources to keep those communities culturally safe. Hear stories of the women leading these efforts from Herrmann while in conversation with National Museum of Natural History exhibit writer and editor, Juliana Olsson. As an AAAS IF/THEN® Ambassador, Herrmann shares how IF we collaborate across borders, THEN big problems become solvable.
