The Homeward Bound program believes that supporting women in science to significantly improve their clarity, confidence, shared vision and strategic capability, will enhance their opportunity to take up leadership roles globally and proactively contribute to a sustainable world.
Over ten years, Homeward Bound want to build a global collaboration of 1,000 women who have a scientific background. Support them into leadership roles, encourage them to stay, to help shape policy and decision making, networked to each other, each in their own way fighting for change, all collaborating for a shared vision.
I am very lucky to have been selected to participate in this program, but participants have to be self-funding and the program costs $16,000. I know a lot of you feel strongly about supporting women's access to leadership as well as environmental issues so please, instead of buying me a Christmas card or Christmas present this year can I ask you to instead contribute to this crowdfunder to help me participate in this program.
