1 APPLICATION PROCESS FOR HOMEWARD BOUND USHUAIA, ARGENTINA, DECEMBER PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY. IT CONTAINS CRUCIAL INFORMATION FOR APPLICATIONS TO PARTICIPATE IN HOMEWARD BOUND. Dear All, Introducing Homeward Bound: a state of the art leadership and strategic program, available to 78 women in science in, or thinking of taking up, leadership roles in our world. Homeward Bound is a once-in-a-lifetime journey to Antarctica and a new future for our planet. Our singular focus is to do the following: Elevate the role of women, with a science background, in leadership globally Clearly demonstrate how polar science is teaching us about what is happening with the planet Explore how women at the leadership table might enable a more sustainable future HOW TO BE PART OF THIS Come aboard a ship set for Antarctica on a 20 day trip of discovery, learning and connections, departing from Ushuaia. Ushuaia is a resort town on Argentina s Tierra del Fuego archipelago, the southernmost tip of South America, nicknamed the End of the World. The windswept town, perched on a steep hill, is surrounded by the Martial Mountains and the Beagle Channel. It is one of the key gateways to Antarctica. On board there will be three central components: a state of the art leadership program; a world class program on the development of strategy and the discipline of execution; and an exceptional science program, ensuring all women understand what is happening to our planet 1 P age

2 Our outcome: 1. A unique group of women with the same leadership context, highly skilled in the development and execution of strategic intentions, with the same motivation to care for our planet both individually and collectively 2. A documentary which tells the story, through the eyes of these women, about the challenges and impact of women in leadership in our world today, with Antarctica as a back drop 3. A network of women who will support each other in staying in and taking up leadership roles to influence policy and decision making globally Preliminary global faculty (who have agreed to be filmed for the unique use of Homeward Bound) will include people such as: Jane Goodall (World famous primatologist and environmentalist) Sylvia Earle (World famous oceanographer and advocate for global ocean conservation) Franny Armstrong (Filmmaker, the Age of Stupid, 100 most influential women in the world) Dr Robert Kaplan (Emeritus Professor of Leadership Development at the Harvard Business School, known as co-creator, together with David P. Norton, of the balanced scorecard; David will also be filmed) Dr Susan David (Co-Founder and Director of the Institute of Coaching, world expert on emotional intelligence) will co-facilitate the leadership program, together with Fabian Dattner, one of Australia s best known social entrepreneurs and leadership experts. Along the way, an exceptional science program will be delivered by specialists from the Australian Antarctic Division and the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (amongst others). They will share valuable insights into the complex environmental systems our world relies upon. WHAT YOU WILL GAIN A fiercer sense of self, understanding who you are as a leader and what aids/limits your opportunities Pragmatic skills in influencing multiple stakeholders The ability to deal with sensitive, difficult or political discussions Comprehensive strategic skills in thinking, planning, execution and measurement A deepening of personal connection to our planet and the science behind environmental change 2 P age

3 BE PART OF AN EXCITING NEW DOCUMENTARY SERIES The whole process from selection to induction, the voyage to the return into the waiting world will form the content for a companion documentary. This film will shine a light on the global crisis that is the profound shortage of women in leadership, encouraging a ripple affect of change to address this imbalance once and for all.

8 Appendix 1 Clothing Packing List To help you prepare for Homeward Bound, Antarpply Expeditions have prepared a list of recommended items to pack. Please keep in mind this list is simply a guideline, which you may choose to modify to fit your individual comfort needs. is an excellent website for the appropriate outfit. Climate Our expedition to Antarctica takes place during the Austral summer. Generally, temperatures in the Antarctic are in the 0C and -15C. Although it can be quite sunny, expect rain, snow, fog and a high wind-chill factor. Expedition Clothing (Comfortable, Durable & Loose) Waterproof Gear: Rain jacket Waterproof trousers Rubber boots Pull-on, unlined, knee-high boots are required for wet landings. Boots must be high with strong, rubber-ridge, non-skid soles. These specifications are very important. You may be stepping into water up to 10 deep on wet landings. Moon or leather boots are NOT appropriate. A supply of rubber boots or Wellingtons, are available on board the USHUAIA and includes a wide variety of sizes. It is recommended that you bring your own only if you require a special size. Please note that the boots on board have been used by previous passengers. Outerwear Parka (Water-repellent hooded parka) Waterproof gloves or mittens (2 pairs minimum) Hat that covers ears, scarf, or other face protection Jacket or sweaters and fleece tops Cotton turtlenecks and t-shirts It is best to bring at least one lightweight and one heavy jacket or sweater. Sweatshirts, turtlenecks, and fleece pullovers are also good Insulators. Layering with wool, silk or synthetics fabrics, rather than cotton, is recommended. 8 P age

9 Other Clothing Four pairs of long wool or cotton socks Several pairs of silk or polypropylene socks Warm pants Thermal or long underwear Light-weight shirts and t-shirts Clothing on board Comfortable and casual clothing, in the expedition spirit, is recommended for the vessel.

10 Appendix 2 Insurance Travel Insurance The Homeward Bound expedition travels to a remote corner of the globe where medical evacuation in the case of an emergency may be very difficult. Evacuations are extremely expensive, particularly from Antarctica where they can cost anything upwards of US$100,000. We require that you obtain emergency evacuation insurance in the event of a medical emergency. We strongly advise you purchase trip cancellation and baggage insurance. Where a passenger requires hospitalisation or medical treatment including evacuation, all costs associated with this are the full responsibility of that passenger. Please check that your policy (particularly if it is issued by your credit card provider) covers this for the destination that you are visiting, and covers any pre-existing medical conditions. If you are arranging your own insurance, you should check that all included activities are covered such as landings and Zodiac cruising. Our Expedition Leaders Adventure Associates can certainly give you a quote for travel insurance, including medical evacuation. Call their office on Please also refer to the terms and conditions in the application document. 10 P age
