HB6 (2021) Participants – Homeward Bound

HB6 (2021) PARTICIPANTS - Homeward Bound

AFMW is very proud of our member Dr Liz Rickman, President of the Australian Lesbian Medical Association (ALMA) for being selected as one of the 100 international participants by Homeward Bound Projects 2021.


These 100 women have been selected from an immensely impressive application pool, for the sixth program. All have a background and/or qualification in science, technology, engineering, mathematics or medicine (STEMM), and they come from all over the globe, from a broad range of professions, occupations and career levels, and have been selected based on their potential to demonstrate a new model of leadership, creating better outcomes for the planet.

The aim of the Homeward bound project is to form a coalition of 1000 women leaders of all backgrounds, to support each other and effect change in the world.

As part of this homeward bound scholarship they will be taking an Antarctic voyage together eventually, when global permissions allow travel given what’s happening with COVID-19.
The link here provides options for friends/ supporters to crowd fund and support their journey of learning and contributing.

Hearty congratulations to you Liz on this marvellous opportunity. We look foreword to hearing the updates and to hearing you speak at one of our sessions, along with some your new friends. “

Magdalena Simonis
President AFMW
