International Women’s Day – Careers Panel

March 6, 2018

As part of a range of activities taking place this week, a number of Ossett Academy students attended a panel discussion focusing on the experiences of women across a range of industries.  We are thankful to Rachel Kennedy (Business Entrepreneur),  Janine Smith (Bio Medical Scientist),  Elaine Yendall (Brewer and owner of a micro brewery and bar) and Dr Jane Moore (Chemist within the pharmaceutical  industry) who gave up their time to answer the questions of our students. This was a positive and inspirational experience for our students!

 “I learnt that I didn’t have to do things in the same way as others. I learnt to have confidence within myself and ignore what others think” – Anna 

“It was interesting to find out about how one of the women moved on after being made redundant and overcoming several challenges” – Tyler

“Makes me determined to go for anything” – Lorna, Ella & Alice
