Zonta Club of Port Macquarie Inc hosts screening of documentary about women in STEMM

The Leadership is a 2020 documentary film that focuses on the first Homeward Bound program and the systemic inequalities for women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).

Featured at both the Sydney and Melbourne Film Festivals, the film follows Australian CEO Fabian Dattner, who leads an international group of 76 female scientists on an Antarctic voyage designed to transform them "into the sort of leaders they want to be."

Filmed in 2016, "the documentary offers viewers a raw insight into the first Homeward Bound journey, which four years later, has evolved and is on track to reach its goal of supporting and creating an international network of 1,000 female leaders by 2026," according to Homeward Bound.
