“Antarctica is the inspiration for collaboration for these leaders, a place to be inspired to work together,” Homeward Bound CEO Pamela Sutton-Legaud says. “Seeing first-hand this dramatic landscape under attack from the climate cements the intention for the women to collaborate as leaders.”
Homeward Bound is thrilled to announce that almost 180 women who are leaders from 25 countries will voyage on two ships to Antarctica with Homeward Bound in November to ensure the sustainability of the planet.

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.
AntarcticaNOW is an international group of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) with disciplinary fields ranging from Antarctic research to conservation biology and public policy. It was founded by members of #TeamHB4, during the world’s largest ever all-woman expedition to Antarctica in 2019. AntarcticaNOW members are united by a single cause: protecting the spectacular biodiversity of Antarctica.
This week marks the end of the virtual development journey for the 5th cohort of Homeward Bound, #TeamHB5. For the past 18 months, 80 incredible women in STEMM , from all over the world, have come together every month to strengthen their connections as a community and to evolve their leadership practice.
Implicit biases are based on our unconscious stereotypes and shape our social preferences and behaviour. We want to believe that we are not racist or sexist. However, being brought up in a certain cultural context makes unconscious biased reactions inevitable.
The #TeamHB4’s Katja Ovchinnikova learnt about bias studies, the more motivated she was to promote diversity and inclusion in STEMM.
Homeward Bound founder Fabian Dattner encourages men and women everywhere to be more as leaders and to expect and ask for more from leaders above them.
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.
Clare Bowditch is a beloved Australian award-winning musician, actor, author, and speaker on topics of modern mental health, big-hearted business, and all things “being woman” and is part of the onboard filmed faculty for Homeward Bound. This week she spoke at the National Press Club of Australia on “Music, Meaning and Money”. HB’s visionary founder Fabian Dattner shares this love letter to a great leader.
