Sign up to be an Inspiring Woman
Inspiring Women connects schools with women from diverse backgrounds working in various careers at many different levels. Volunteers visit schools and chat informally about their journey from school to their current career a way that is understandable and exciting.
From The Irish Times, 2018:
Minister for Children & Youth Affairs Katherine Zappone, was the keynote speaker, said it was “vitally important” for young girls who are considering any career to have female role models in their chosen fields. “Representation is key to success,” she said. “You need to be able to see yourself in those roles you are aspiring towards.
Fionnuala Meehan, head of Google Ireland, said visible role models were “critical to enabling the aspirations of young people and challenging pre- conceived perceptions”.
Patty Clement, EU chief operating officer at Bank of America said she believes through education and mentoring students will be motivated to realise their ambition and look forward to encouraging female professionals to join this progressive and exciting programme.”
