I have been selected for the Homeward Bound 2018-2019 leadership program! I am over-exited about enrolling in #TeamHB2019 to contribute towards gender equality, women in science and collaborative science on climate change.
WHAT IS HOMEWARD BOUND? Homeward Bound: a state of the art leadership and strategic program for women in science from around the globe. I will be part of HB's third cohort, 75 women from at least 18 different countries who will follow a one-year leadership program followed by a three-week trip to Antarctica.
Homeward Bound aims to: •Elevate the role of women in leadership globally; Antarctica is the backdrop •Clearly demonstrate how polar science tells us what is happening with the planet •Explore how women at the leadership table might give us a more sustainable future
Below the application I sent in Sept 2017 to apply for the program. I am presently in the process of fundraising to sponsor my program and trip, so if you have any tips on who could sponsor me, please email me!
