Women in Leadership Careers Event

Regents Park Marriott

This was an event to connect sixth-formers at the school with senior women in leadership, from Blackrock, Aldermore, Visa and DLA Piper.

Sixth formers at the school were studying women in leadership and were keen to connect the theory of their studies to women in the workplace.

As such, Yatish Vadhwana, the teacher leading the programme, asked if Leathwaite was able to arrange for them to hear short presentations from women at various stages of their careers – from grad level to senior executives.

Leathwaite Mentoring Programme and Career Days

As part of the Leathwaite Community, Leathwaite employees are encouraged to be regular mentors for St. Marylebone’s School. Leathwaite has also organised and taken part in career days with the aim to give tips and advice to help pupils to plan their future career.
