All female voyage to Antarctica
An adventure involving 75 international scientists with an agenda to change the world.
Deborah Pardo, a Research Associate at Lucy Cavendish College, was part of the first Homeward Bound expedition, a groundbreaking leadership, strategic and science initiative for women, set against the backdrop of Antarctica. The inaugural voyage took place last December.
The initiative, turned global movement, aimed 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. 76 women were selected from around the world and included astronomers, engineers, physicists, science communicators, Antarctic and Arctic specialists, doctors and social scientists.
Deborah Pardo will share her inspiring experience with us, illustrating her talk with some fantastic slides. Find out why she decided to apply for this extraordinary project, how she set about fundraising for €20,000 and how CamAWiSE helped her. Of course, we’ll also hear about the three weeks she spent in Antarctica and how that changed her.
Book now and join us on Wednesday 15th February at Lucy Cavendish College.
Talk starts at 20:00. A short AGM will follow.
