Inspiring Women: International Women’s Day

On the 8th of March we celebrated International women’s day. During the careers convention in the evening, some stalls such as engineering and RVC, Willmott Dixon, Mott McDonald, Horticulture and Ecology had all female representatives, showing how female empowerment has increased greatly in the work place.

IWD was first observed on the 28th February 1909 in the US and has been a celebrated day ever since across the world. The day is focused on celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women globally which is something we greatly encourage every day in our own school.
