Homeward Bound is a groundbreaking leadership, strategic and science initiative for women, set against the backdrop of Antarctica.

The initiative, turned global movement, 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.

Launching in 2016, Homeward Bound has 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 culminates 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.

The inaugural 2016 voyage takes place from 2 – 21 December. Applications for the next program, departing in 2018, will open 17 January 2017. There are already hundreds of women wait-listed for the second program.
