OUR VISION: By 2036 we have supported and engaged 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 #TeamHB7 – currently on their learning journey.
I’ve just wrapped up the first part of an experience like no other. It all began in June 2019, when I was selected for the fifth cohort Homeward Bound (HB), a global leadership program for women in STEM. This connects likeminded women from around the globe for an intensive online leadership program that culminates with a voyage to Antarctica.
Most tsunamis are caused by earthquakes, but a significant percentage (about 15%) are caused by landslides or volcanoes. Some of these may be interlinked – for example, landslide tsunamis are often triggered by earthquakes or volcanic eruptions. But does climate change also play a role? #TeamHB6’s Jane Cunneen is a geologist specialising in plate tectonics, geophysics, earthquakes, tsunamis, and natural hazard mitigation.
Why tackling leadership capability might be one of the best things we can do to solve wicked problems
Right now our world is facing some wicked problems. Leading the field is the evident and pressing challenge of the climate crisis. We are heading towards a temperature and its consequences, with fierce determination.
Homeward Bound wellbeing faculty member Sandra Radovini’s promotion to Professor at The University of Melbourne is an event to be celebrated because it is rare to find women like Sandra, who don’t follow the prescribed academic path, elevated to these roles.
Putting together a leadership program for women in STEMM with the potential to ensure the sustainability of the planet is not a task for the faint hearted. Kit Jackson was on board the Homeward Bound “ship” from the start, identifying early on that these women needed more than business strategy tools to be effective leaders. They needed a Personal Strategy.
Homeward Bound has been chosen as the recipient of the IV Malaspina Award in recognition its global work advancing the leadership capability of women in STEMM.
