In the summer of 2017 in a tangent during a discussion we asked who our (OMEGA’s) role models can be. The answer was fairly unanimous. The fair sex. The female members of OMEGA, because they do what society has historically said a lady would not do.
Today, in 2018, our team is 43% female and these ladies – we challenge tradition deliberately – include nationally certified instructors in first aid, CPR, BLS, wilderness first aid, search and rescue. They include nurses, EMTs, divers, climbers and fire fighters. They can build communications networks as easily as haul systems and they do all this because they have a passion to help others.
Today, on March 8, International Women’s Day, we celebrate our heroes.
