Join us for a panel discussion with four participants of the international leadership programme Homeward Bound for women in STEMM. They will discuss their innovative work in STEMM fields and share their reflection from their 12-month journey dedicated to promoting the importance of women in leadership roles to tackle climate change.

Drs Maria Weikum, Sharon Pfleger, Stephanie Ordonez and Wendy Pring are four scientists based in Scotland who work in areas of research culture and skills development, pharmaceuticals and the health of our water environment, renewable energy, and the sustainability of our planet. The panellists will culminate their leadership journey with a 3-week voyage to Antarctica in November 2023 to see the effects of climate change up close and work together to develop interventions to preserve and protect this fragile ecosystem.

The session will be chaired by Professor Eleanor Shaw, Associate Principal, Strathclyde University. She focuses on entrepreneurial diversity and her work on women’s, graduate, social and creative entrepreneurship is published in leading journals including the Journal of Business Venturing.
