Female Students Meet Inspiring Women.

Inspiring Women.

This Sunday, 8 March, it's International Women's Day. To celebrate, we invited 6 inspirational women to visit Haverstock School and meet with girls from Year 7 through to Year 13. Our high–flying guests included a clinical psychologist, a lawyer, an obstetrician, and commercial managers from Mace and HS2.

41 of our students came to hear these impressive women talk about their career journeys, the personal challenges they had overcome along the way, and how they dealt with their own day to day experiences of sexism and racism. Our visitors gave an optimistic message by explaining what they would say to their younger selves: ‘work hard but be kind to yourself!’

A Year 13 student sums it up, ‘They were very inspiring, powerful role models and also relatable. I liked that they were from different backgrounds.’
