"These local women are making bold moves, creating positive change, and bringing new voices to deep-sea exploration, ocean conservation, and underwater technology, film, and photography.
They’re passionate about breaking down barriers, pushing their fields further, calling attention to important issues, and educating and inspiring future generations to protect our oceans.
During this in-person event, three presenters will share what it’s like to work in their field, as well as a standout experience from their career. This will be followed by a collective discussion facilitated by our panel host about how the three fields can work together to improve the future of our seas."

Vancouver divers to reach new depths in Howe Sound freediving competition
"Roberta Cenedese is a self-proclaimed 'oceanoid' - a human that is drawn to spend much of their time and energy in the water. On the film side of things, she works as an underwater Stunt Performer and Water Training & Safety Diver, working alongside stunt coordinators and stunt performers to guide technical water shots on set. She also trains actors to safely extend their breath hold for work in front of the camera - with safety always being paramount. We talk about what it's like to work underwater on set, how much the mind plays a role and why everyone should explore their own waters, wherever they live."
"In episode twenty three, host Brett Stanley chats with Master Freedive Instructor & cold water specialist Roberta Cenedese. Based in Vancouver Canada, Roberta often works on film and tv sets coaching actors for their underwater scenes, she works alongside stunt performers as part of the safety team, and provides guidance to the production on how to achieve some of the technical shots their going for. They chat about breath holding techniques, how dangerous cold water can be, and how amazing it was working on a show like Siren."
