Women in Leadership - 'Words for Work' Event Inspires Tomorrow's Leaders

Eighteen students from Year 11 attended a Women in Leadership event recently, hosted by the National Literacy Trust and Lancôme.

Called 'Words for Work', our students listened to eight inspirational female panellists (see below) who spoke about their journeys, lives, current lifestyles, successes and failures, and gave our girls the advice they wished they had been given as a teenager. The main messages that shone through were:

  • say ‘yes’ to every opportunity and ask questions later
  • be kinder to yourself and love yourself
  • know your worth and show employers your worth too.

HAP

All students were able to express their fears and hopes for the future and then listen to advice about how to overcome fears and break down barriers.

The panellists (see below) were fantastic with many students from the Federation staying behind to ask them questions. Panellists were joined by female CEO representatives from Lancôme who were there to see the launch of their apprenticeship programme for our Year 13s (our Year 11s will be in with a chance in a couple of years!).


Thank you to all the panellists for their fantastic speeches. 

  • Amy Cartledge - Regional Operations Director, Benoy      
  • Cressida Curtis   - Head of Corporate Affairs & Sustainability, British Land
  • Emma Gannon – Writer, broadcaster and podcast host
  • Lucy Gardiner – Director, PwC   
  • Akua Gyekye - Public Policy Manager, Facebook
  • Sarah Lee - Partner, Slaughter and May 
  • Nia Pettitt – CEO and creator, The Curl Bar London/ Happy Fro Day            
  • Nallini Puri – Partner, Cleary Gottlieb     

All students have also walked away with the inspirational book, Becoming, by Michelle Obama.
