Inspiring our female students with Greystar Construction

Greystar 01
 
On February 26th we were delighted to welcome into our school 4 female professionals who work for or with Greystar Construction, the company overseeing a large residential development at Greenford Quay on the Grand Union Canal. Our visitors were experts in the diverse fields of landscape architecture, civil engineering, interior design and management.. 
 
Of all the Science, Technology and Engineering jobs in the UK only 26%Greystar 02 are done by women which is a national problem. We firmly believe in breaking down barriers to make our female students understand these rewarding and well paid careers are within their grasp if they work hard, get good grades and follow their dreams. 
 
Our speakers were inspirational, engaging and talked about a number of things about themselves, their journeys, careers and future plans. It was a privilege to host such an event and as always great to work with businesses in our local community who give us a window into the world of work beyond school. 
 
A big thank you to our year 9 girls for taking part and being so interactive and also a further thank you to Isa, Mandisa, Amy and Gabriela for their time and expertise.
