Cabot Corporation

Cabot Corporation is a leading global specialty chemicals and performance materials company. Their products service the transportation, infrastructure, environment, and consumer industries.

In 2020, the Cabot Corporation is helping close the gender gap in STEM through Earthwatch’s  Girls in Science program. They have given a student from a Boston Public School the opportunity to spend 8 days experiencing what it’s like to be a true research biologist, alongside other Girls in Science students. In addition, Earthwatch learning facilitators guide the young women through skill-building exercises that improve their confidence and teach them to share their stories of science. This program is designed to empower young women to pursue their STEM interests through mentorship, hands-on research, and confidence-building.


Earthwatch depends on donations—above and beyond what we raise from volunteers who participate on our expeditions—in order to deliver our global conservation mission. In fact, volunteer contributions provide only half of the total resources Earthwatch needs to sustain over 40 field research expeditions, a wide variety of educational programs, corporate sustainability trainings, and more each year.
