(Mark Rutherford School, Bedford)
Following a successful visit by female engineers from Lockheed Martin and Acon on 8 January 2014, Mark Rutherford School (Bedford) is keen to hear from engaging women who have used their success in mathematics and economics at School and University to support a City career.
On 8 January 2014, Engineers Hannah Shepherd (Lockheed), Katharine Allison (Lockheed) and Natalie Greenwell (Acon) engaged over 200 year nine girls with relevant stories from their personal journeys.
These stories featured their dreams (in one case to be a dancer) in their earliest teenage years, the tales of their respective transformations into engineers (in one case via a Sports Science research project at University) and began with descriptions of the elements of their day-to-day work in engineering that were not “classified”.
The girls were shown a video featuring some of Lockheed Martin’s latest technology and the large variety of engineering work developing in the UK. Mark Rutherford School would like to hear from similarly inspirational women, who work in the City, willing and able to visit the school for a morning to lift our girls’ aspirations – and inform them about options for them in finance and in economics particularly.
