Homeward Bound is a leadership program for women in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine) to develop a global collaboration of 1000 women over 10 years.
The aim is to develop leaders who demonstrate skills in collaboration and inclusion, are legacy minded and trustworthy with people and financial assets, to help make decisions from the perspective of the global home, on behalf of future generations.
