Event description

Description

We are excited to invite you to The Influencers - Women in STEMM event. This is an opportunity to hear from a diverse panel of women researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs and scientists. They will share with you their stories, the challenges, opportunities and future trends for women working in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM).

This event is also an opportunity to learn about Homeward Bound, a 12-month innovative global leadership initiative, that aims to improve the leadership, communication, visibility, and strategic capabilities of women in STEMM. The Homeward Bound program culminates in a 22-day all-female leadership expedition to Antarctica.

Nicole Fetchet, one of the 80 female scientists participating in Homeward Bound, will share her story and explain the value of the Homeward Bound program before setting sail for Antarctica in February 2018.

100% of proceeds from the sale of tickets to this event will be donated to Nicole to support her journey to Antarctica.
