This is a big deal! 78 Women from around the globe will participate in various science projects as part of a program called Homeward Bound:
Homeward Bound aims to:
• Elevate the role of women in leadership globally
• Clearly demonstrate how polar science tells us what is happening with the planet
• Explore how women at the leadership table might give us a more sustainable future
Will have to follow their progress and the outcomes!
I found out about these folks from an Aussie article about their participation, you can read it here: Canberra scientists on board first all-female expedition to Antarctica.
