Misty Dawn Thorose - Homeward Bound Projects

Misty Dawn Thorose

Assistant Director at Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment

Living in New South Wales, Australia

Misty Dawn is a passionate Earth Scientist with an Honours Degree in Environmental Science (Conservation Ecology/Earth Science) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Geology (Geochemistry/ Petrology). She strives to BE the change she wants to see in this world, leading by example in sustainable, innovative ideas to remedy traditional challenges, bringing environmental conscience for sustainable practices to resource exploration.

A born explorer and adventurer, regardless of where she has travelled in her career, Misty Dawn has always been drawn to empowering women and girls in the local communities she has worked in. Teaching science to women who have had limited access to education is one of her passions and witnessing the looks of understanding and fascination on these women’s faces as they learn new concepts is one of her most genuine joys. To date, her greatest career achievements include: empowering and protecting local women in strongly patriarchal Papua New Guinea by introducing sexual harassment policies to a mining camp where none previously existed, actively combating daily sexual harassment and assaults on local women; initiating a Women’s Circle for women to learn AIDS, STI prevention and menstrual health in a culture where sex and menstruation are strongly taboo; removing the use of toxic cleaning products in a remote mining camp that were polluting local waterways and replacing them with eco-friendly alternatives; and educating remote coastal developing communities the importance of responsible removal and disposal of plastic waste from their local shoreline, resulting in the slow return of fish and crab food sources.

Misty Dawn is passionate about empowering women, science education and believes education is key to enacting positive change for a sustainable future for all beings.
