It just got real for #TeamHB6! I can’t wait to be your artist at Antarctica!
From Homeward Bound:
“What better day to introduce to the world the amazing cohort of women that make up Homeward Bound’s 6th cohort? Happy #InternationalDayofWomenInScienceand Welcome #TeamHB6! This inspiring group of women are all at different stages of their careers, they work across a huge range STEMM disciplines, and are spread across the globe, but they all understand the need for more women at the table.”
I’m beyond excited to be selected for cohort 6 of Homeward Bound, a ground-breaking, global leadership initiative, set against the backdrop of Antarctica, which aims to heighten the influence and impact of women in making decisions that shape our planet. I will be joining 99 other women in STEMM, first through a virtual leadership program, followed by an expedition to Antarctica in 2022 (depending on the Covid-19 situation).
Thank you to friends and mentors who encouraged me to say yes, and to my colleagues and friends at SEAD and the Obama Leaders Asia-Pacific—my first leadership programs—to make an artist feel that she’s up for this!
I can’t wait for the journey of growth ahead. Stay tuned!
