OUR VISION: By 2036 we have powered a globally diverse leadership network of 10,000 STEMM women who are ensuring the sustainability of our planet.
The what, the why and the how of this groundbreaking leadership program.
Meet the amazing women of #TeamHB5 – currently on their learning journey
In June 2002 #TeamHB6’s Liz Rickman took her turn as a peaceful Greenpeace protestor chained aboard the M/S Fagervik at the Swedish port of Norrköping. When police boarded the ship, cutting through the chains and taking Liz and two companions into custody, she was calm and felt assured that the “normal process” would follow. But it didn’t.
A report from The Asia Foundation shows how women’s STEM networks, such as Homeward Bound, play an important role in overcoming barriers and advancing opportunities for women and girls; for example, to create and sustain a space for sharing, support, and mentorship.
Sylvia Earle, in her 80s, is mesmerising in her intelligence. Marine biologist, oceanographer, explorer, author, lecturer, explorer-in-residence since 1998 for National Geographic, first female chief scientist of the U.S. NOAA: National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, and named by TIME as its first Hero for the Planet in 1998. She was interviewed in October 2016 by Fabian Dattner for Homeward Bound Projects. Hear her telling of decades old sexism and the facts of her leadership of the Tektite Project in 1970.
Giving women the skills to be willing and capable of taking their place as leaders means addressing and working on wellbeing. Homeward Bound is using the evidence-based set of tools in the Global Leadership Wellness Survey (GLWS) in the online component of the leadership program, helping participants gain a complete view of factors affecting energy, resilience, and wellbeing, and the resources to meaningfully improve them for themselves, their teams and their organisation.
“We’ve got a closing window of opportunity to do the right thing! The High Seas treaty is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to change how we manage our global ocean.” Nichola Clarke, #TeamHB6
Following the 2019-2020 Australian bushfire season, a small group of women from #TeamHB4 took the lead on writing an open letter to the Prime Minister with the hope to influence Australia to switch from coal-burning to 100% renewable energy powered by the sun and wind.
