2021 Lipson Lecture: Reach beyond your limitations!

All alumni and friends of the university are invited to join us for the annual Lipson Lecture hosted by the UVic Faculty of Science. This year's lecture will feature Jill Heinerth, Explorer-in-Residence at The Royal Canadian Geographical Society. Heinerth is a Canadian cave diver, underwater explorer, writer, photographer, and filmmaker. 

Imagine... More people have walked on the moon than have visited many of the places that Jill Heinerth has seen on earth. From the most dangerous technical deep dives inside underwater caves, to searching for never-before-seen ecosystems inside giant Antarctic icebergs, Heinerth's curiosity and passion about our watery planet is a driving force in her life.

In her visually stunning presentations, Heinerth encourages audiences to reach beyond their limitations, challenge the unknown, and overcome their fears, while applying her practical experience to share lessons on risk management, discovery learning, failure, and collaboration strategies.
