CFGS Students Meet the Countess of Wessex

Four Central Foundation Girls’ School (CFGS) students had the privilege of meeting HRH Sophie, the Countess of Wessex at The Women’s Network Forum.

Hosted by The London Stock Exchange (LSE), in partnership with the Duke of Edinburgh programme, CFGS students had the opportunity to discuss their career goals and aspirations with a group of mentors from large corporate business in the city, whilst Sophie talked to them about the different pathways they could take, including the decision between University or taking an apprenticeship.  

The students who attended the event, Isha, Moriom, Isha, and Thahrima said: 

“The Event was extremely motivating and inspiring to see women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds at the forefront of their careers.”

Matt Walsh, Community Manager said of the event:

“It was a fantastic event at a very prestigious venue, where students got the chance to meet senior and young female employees at a number of businesses including Google, Lloyds Bank and the LSE itself.  It was an inspiring evening and a great opportunity for our girls to meet one of the most respected members of The Royal Family.”
