Antarctica, a ship, 78 women and a leadership program. Antarctica is a majestic, stunning and immense continent. Why did 78 women in STEMM travel there for a leadership program? Come join Hannah Laeverenz Schlogelhofer as she talks about her journey to Antarctica with Homeward Bound - an initiative that is building a global network of 1000 women with the aim to heighten the influence and impact of women with a science background in order to influence policy and decision making as it shapes our planet.

Applications for the 4th cohort of Homeward Bound are open until 18th May:
