FEMALE LEADERS TACKLING THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY
A global partner of Homeward Bound
As global partners of Homeward Bound, we are promoting a new edition that will culminate in the largest female expedition to Antarctica. The expedition will bring together 1,000 scientists from 35 countries and also coincides with the celebration of the bicentenary of the discovery of Antarctica.
Since our incorporation as a global partner three years ago, we have facilitated the participation of 400 women in the program. The aim of Homeward Bound is to create, within 10 years, an international network of 1,000 professionals working in different areas of the STEM (science, tech, engineering, math and medicine) disciplines to collaborate in projects in diverse scientific and geographical fields.
The one-year initiative includes training programs with specialist mentors in leadership, strategy, communication and visibility, based on an evaluation of personal development. The mentors selected for HB04 include world-renowned figures such as the architect of the Paris Agreement, Christiana Figueres, primatologist Jane Goodall, and Musimbi Kanyoro, CEO and president of the Global Fund for Women.
We are supporting the 4th edition of Homeward Bound (HB04), the international female scientists' leadership program for tackling the climate crisis.
