Our new partners MEPC are inspiring the next generation of females in Leeds with the Wellington Place Women of the Future event.
Welcoming 45 students from three different inner-city schools across Leeds, including: Leeds West Academy, John Smeaton Academy and Mount St Mary’s Catholic High School the event gave the young women the opportunity to meet inspirational female figures from businesses based at the Wellington Place development.
Working alongside Ahead Partnership, the event brought together representatives from businesses including Netpremacy, Mazars, Shulmans, Investec, BuroHappold Engineering, Willis Towers Watson, Equifax, The Crowne Plaza, Wates and Sainsburys. Students were given the opportunity to meet business volunteers from all organisational levels, with interactive careers activities and workshops to encourage confidence in the workplace, communications skills and workplace etiquette. What’s more, with tours around contemporary workspaces such as the offices of Willis Towers Watson and Netpremacy, the students were able to pack a lot into their morning.
