Homeward Bound is a groundbreaking leadership, strategic and science initiative and outreach for women, set against the backdrop of Antarctica. The initiative, turned global movement, aims to heighten the influence and impact of women with a science background in order to influence policy and decision making as it shapes our planet.

Launching in 2016, Homeward Bound gathered the first 76 women from around the world, all with critical science backgrounds, to undertake a year-long state-of-the-art program to develop their leadership and strategic capabilities, using science to build conviction around the importance of their voices. The inaugural program culminated in the largest-ever female expedition to Antarctica, in December 2016, with a focus on the leadership of women and the state of the world. The second crew of 70 women has recently been chosen, for a year of training and a trip to Antarctica in March 2018. The Homeward Bound initiative will last ten years, with the goal of creating a network of 1000 women. Learn more about Homeward Bound and you can participate. 

Melissa Cano, a 2018 expedition member, will be available to answer questions and talk about the program at the 2017 Women in Science Workshop April. 

Educate to empower. Engage to change.

The Women & Gender Collaborative is one of seven major groups at Colorado State University that explicitly focuses on gender-related issues and improving the campus culture and climate around gender. The Collaborative is charged by the University President to heighten the level of critical understanding and dialogue around women and gender-related issues that impact campus climate and culture, as well as inform the campus community about various efforts across the university and encourage engagement on behalf of all community members. The Collaborative will serve as a campus resource by developing opportunities for increased education around and engagement with women and gender-related issues; facilitating dialogues; convening relevant stakeholders; promoting related programs, workshops, and events; building, supporting, and maintaining collaborative relationships on campus and in the local community; coordinating opportunities for professional and leadership development among women; and increasing the two-way communication between and among diverse constituencies, including the President, university administration, faculty, staff, students, and local community members. The Collaborative may identify, recommend, and assist in the development of high-impact initiatives and activities to the President and the Provost that may improve the campus culture and climate with respect to gender and its intersections with other identity categories (such as race, sexuality, and class).
