    “Visible role models were critical to enabling the aspirations of young people and challenging preconceived perceptions”.

LOCATION: GOOGLE EMEA HQ,DUBLIN

A group of inspiring women working at the Google Data Centre in Grange Castle will share stories of their career journeys at an interactive event & tour of the EMEA HQ this September: the ups and downs, the unexpected turns and the successes that brought them to Google in Dublin.

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 in a way that is understandable and exciting.

Support

Many key figures have spoken in support of the Inspiring Women programme. At the launch of the programme in 2018, Katherine Zappone 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 preconceived 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.”
