This journey began almost a year ago when I learned I had been selected as one of 78 international women leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to participate in Homeward Bound. Homeward Bound is a strategic leadership initiative to increase leadership capacity and visibility of women in STEM and to create a 1,000 strong network and collaboration of women over the next 10 years to influence decision-making as it impacts the future of our planet. The culmination of the program is a 22-day expedition to Antarctica – an iconic continent that is one of the areas on earth that is showing the fastest response to climate change.
A blog that captures my experience and photography of the expedition to Antarctica, a magnificent but fragile continent has been included on this website.
Thank you to all the individuals who contributed to my gofundme fundraising and to the Mountain Equipment Co-Op (MEC) for their expedition support to make this possible.
