“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.
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.
Homeward Bound is an inspirational, focused, pragmatic, global collaboration for and with women in STEMM, to role model and evolve a very different way of leading. We share common cause – to care for Earth as our home, and we have the expertise, intellect and will to do something about it.
… leadership is everywhere; not just in those positions labeled as such. All of us can apply the principles of trauma leadership every day. We can apply it to ourselves, our families and workplaces, and the way we show up in the world.
At the heart of Homeward Bound is the foundational belief in women with a STEMM background leading for the greater good.
