The 78 women selected or the fifth Homeward Bound Program completed their online Homeward Bound program in November 2021. They await safe and equitable global travel to return before they can participate in a global Homeward Bound meetup.
These incredibly resilient leaders all have a background (that is, a degree qualification, or equivalent) in science, technology, engineering, mathematics or medicine (STEMM). They come from all over the globe, cover a broad range of professions, occupations and career levels, and were selected based on their potential to demonstrate a new model of leadership, creating better outcomes for the planet.
Pathways and mechanisms for having impact form a core part of program content and discussions, and the ongoing intention of Homeward Bound is to develop a 10,000-strong network of women with backgrounds in STEMM who can support each other in creating change.
Please keep an eye out for any links to crowdfunding campaigns in the bios below, and support these amazing women as they continue to fundraise for their global meetup.
