Lessons from the Leader “ship”

Why is it that women find it so hard to break through the glass ceilings in STEMM careers? Could it be the harassment, sexual abuse, the culture that places competition above collaboration, the lack of diversity or being ignored?

The Leadership is an independent documentary that follows female scientists on their leadership ‘Homeward Bound’ journey to Antarctica. The film’s preview and Q&A session in Perth, drew a full house – and included members from the Zonta Club of Perth. The audience was inspired by the personal journeys of the scientists and their leadership team in the film and left the event thinking about how the lessons learned from the ship can translate into our own lives.

The movie is being launched nationally in October and is well worth a look. Check out Homeward Bound for more information.
