To celebrate International Women’s Day 2020, ECMWF asked a selection of experts and leaders in the world of meteorology to tell us their story – what inspired each to take the journey that led them to where they are today, and what advice they can give to the new generation of meteorologists coming after them. Each day in the week running up to International Women’s Day, we published new stories until we had a full set by Sunday, 8 March.
