Homeward Bound’s statement on global conflict

“Leadership calls on us all not to ignore global human suffering.”
The board of Homeward Bound makes this statement in response to the wars being fought around the world.

Learning to Lead During the Global Pandemic: Bernie-Anne Freeman

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.

5 ways climate change boosts tsunami threat, from collapsing ice shelves to sea level rise

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.

Celebrating the “right kind” of leader

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.

Why women in STEMM need a whole of life personal strategy

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.

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.
