Inspiring Women in Scotland

On 6 October 2014, New College Lanarkshire hosted the Inspiring Women in Scotland launch event. Ten senior women from government, public and private sectors, and the arts took part in a speed career-networking event talking directly with 100 young girls about their experiences, their job and how they got there. Schools and colleges in Scotland can now find diverse volunteers to talk jobs, careers and life experiences with their students.

We need to build up our database of schools/colleges and employers/professional bodies and individually volunteers across Scotland and you do so by going on and registering today.

If you’re a school/colleges or an employer/professional body and you would like some more information, please contact enquiries@inspiringthefuture.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible to set up a call.
