September Forum: Women, Leadership, Climate Change…and Antarctica!

Thursday, 5 Sep
7:00 pmto9:00 pm


Dr Mary McMillan in Antarctica, 2018

What if men and women led our world in equal measure? Would our world and the decisions we make on behalf of future generations be different? This was the question that led to the launch of Homeward Bound, a ground-breaking global leadership initiative for women in STEMM, which aims to provide women with skills to enhance their ability to lead for the greater good, and to impact decision-making for a sustainable future.

Dr Mary McMillan, a Lecturer in Biomedical Sciences at the University of New England, will present “Women, Leadership, and Climate Change” at the next SLA Forum, Thursday September 5 at Kent House, from 7pm.

Dr McMillan completed the year-long Homeward Bound program, which culminated in a 3-week voyage to Antarctica. Regions of Antarctica are showing the fastest responses to some of the global sustainability problems we face. They offer an unparalleled opportunity to observe first-hand the influence of human activities on the environment and provide critical insights into the global-scale changes required.

In this presentation, Dr McMillan will provide insights into the importance of this type of leadership program in relation to the environment faced by women in science. She will take us on a visual tour of the Antarctic Peninsula, and discuss the changes that are taking place in this unique environment as a result of human activity.
