In July 2015, I responded to the following call to arms…
December 2016: 78 women from around the world, all scientists, 20 days to Antarctica and back, learning state of the art leadership & strategic skills.
We think you may be interested in this project.
The project has an extraordinary and growing global faculty (who will be filmed) including Jane Goodall, Sylvia Earle, Robert Kaplan and Franny Armstrong. The science on board is sponsored by the Australian Antarctic Division, the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Science and Women in Polar Science.
And in August 2015, I received the following message:
Thank you for your Homeward Bound application.
We are incredibly pleased to announce that you have a spot on the 2016 December Homeward Bound Antarctic Expedition. Congratulations! Now go and jump about, and scream a little, and then come back and read the rest of this….
And so the journey begins…
