STUDENT’S HOST WORKSHOP WITH INVESTMENT MENTORS TO GIVE TOWER HAMLETS WOMEN A VOICE
Female students from Tower Hamlets College hosted a one-day workshop with banking, charity and teaching mentors to discuss proposals for a large-scale one-day conference about women’s rights to be held later this year in Tower Hamlets.
The planned conference is being organised and planned by the College students and aims to discuss the role of women in society and how a women’s voice can be promoted more assertively.
Representatives from the College’s teaching staff, women’s charities and Hermes Investment Management attended the workshop to mentor the students in the planning of the conference’s themes and structures. The workshop was arranged by the students to help them talk and work through their ideas for the conference with their mentors.
At the workshop, students discussed their ideas to bring positive female role models together to discuss how to advance women’s assertiveness and raise awareness amongst young female students of their rights as women to have an assertive voice. They also discussed holding presentations, discussion groups and debates amongst students and guest participants at the conference.
Students and guests also enjoyed a lunch at the College’s Canary View restaurant, which was cooked and served by hospitality and catering students.
The College is also delighted to have the support and involvement of mentors from Hermes Investment Management who are providing their expertise and guidance to the student’s through to the conference later this year.
Sue Woodall, Senior Curriculum Manager for Health and Social Care at Tower Hamlets College said:
“By working on this event, the students have improved their communication skills and been able to grow their confidence and self-esteem further. We are delighted to have the support of mentors from Hermes Investment.”
Joanna Klaentschi, from Hermes Investment Management said:
