World’s largest initiative to elevate the visibility of women heading to Antarctica

“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.

Inclusion – space to recognise and challenge implicit bias

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.

The leadership we need

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.

What are the drivers of wellbeing for leaders?

What are the drivers of wellbeing for leaders?

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.
