"Make it Monday" forum - Life in the Arctic: Perspectives from Bering Straits Native Corporation
BSNC President & CEO Gail Schubert will present about Life in the Arctic at the "Make it Monday" forum on Sept. 9. The Bering Strait region is located at a critical geographic juncture. It is a mere 50 miles across from the U.S. side to Russia at what is commonly referenced as "the choke point." Attendees will learn how the communities within the BSNC region are challenged in adapting to a new climate, how a more accessible Arctic presents both opportunities and risks and the geopolitical implications of an ice-free Arctic.

Gail is an original shareholder of BSNC and the Unalakleet Native Corporation. She is Inupiaq Eskimo and was born and raised in Unalakleet, Alaska.
