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 backgrounds, to undertake a year-long state-of-the-art program to develop their leadership and strategic capabilities, using science to build conviction around the importance of their voices. 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 new cohort of 70 women have now been selected for the second leadership program, which will take place over 12 months and include an Antarctic expedition in February 2018. Join our mailing list to be the first to know about future Homeward Bound news and developments.
