Homeward Bound is a groundbreaking leadership program for women with a background in the STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) professions. It is currently a third of the way towards achieving its 10-year goal of equipping a 1000-strong global collaboration of women to proactively lead, influence and contribute to policy and decision-making as it shapes the future of our planet.

Founded by Australian leadership expert Fabian Dattner in 2015, Homeward Bound reflects her concern for the practice of leadership globally, the intransigent absence of women in leadership, and fear for the future of our planet. Research shows that women generally lead with greater inclusion and more collaboration, are more trustworthy with assets and are guided by a legacy mindset – all of which is the kind of leadership the world critically needs, and which the program seeks to amplify.

Homeward Bound participants encompass over 40 nationalities and 25 STEMM disciplines. Supported by a global faculty of experts and environmental champions, participants complete a 12-month program to increase skills in leadership, strategy, visibility and collaboration, while also broadening the scope of their scientific knowledge. The program culminates in a three-week expedition to Antarctica, one of the most ecologically sensitive and inspiring places on Earth.
