Homeward Bound

Mother Nature needs her daughters

Homeward Bound is a groundbreaking leadership, strategic and science initiative for women, set against the backdrop of Antarctica. The initiative aims 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, within 10 years.

Polar Latitudes is proud to be the exclusive operator for Homeward Bound’s Antarctica voyages starting in 2019-2020.


Who is Homeward Bound?

In 2016, Homeward Bound gathered the first 76 of a targeted 1,000 women from around the world, all with critical science backgrounds, to undertake a year-long state-of-the-art program to develop their leadership and strategic capabilities, using science to build conviction around the importance of their voices.

The inaugural program culminated in the largest-ever female expedition to Antarctica, in December 2016, with a focus on the leadership of women and the state of the world.

A second cohort of 78 women have recently completed their 12-month leadership program and Antarctic expedition in March 2018, and our third cohort of women in STEMM are currently undertaking the program.

Join their mailing list to be the first to know about future Homeward Bound news and developments, including the recruitment of their fourth cohort in April 2018.
