Building a global network of 1,000 women in STEMM to influence policy and decision making as it shapes our planet.
Homeward Bound Departure
Homeward Bound is a groundbreaking leadership, strategic and science initiative for women, set against the backdrop of Antarctica.
The initiative aims to heighten the influence and impact of women with a science background in order to influence policy and decision making as it shapes our planet, within 10 years.
In 2016, Homeward Bound gathered the first 76 of a targeted 1,000 women from around the world, all with critical science (STEMM) backgrounds, to undertake a year-long state-of-the-art leadership program. The inaugural program culminated in the largest-ever female expedition to Antarctica, in December 2016, with a focus on the leadership of women and the state of the world.
A second cohort of 78 women recently completed their 12-month leadership program and Antarctic expedition in March 2018, and our third cohort of women in STEMM are currently undertaking the program and depart for Antarctica in December 2018. Join our mailing list to be the first to know about future Homeward Bound news and developments, including the recruitment of our next cohort.
