On Thursday 20th March 2014, Capgemini, one of the world’s leading IT and consulting companies, hosted a networking event to celebrate International Woman’s Day.

Kingsbury High School Sixth Form students, Anika, Bindiya, Ushma and Radhika were invited to attend the event, where they heard a talk from Sly Bailey, followed by a Q & A session. Sly was on the board of a magazine publishing company at just 31 having worked her way up from being a shop assistant.  She is probably best known for her role as Chief Executive at Trinity Mirror. She is now on the board of Ladbrokes; as well as being a governor at the English National Ballet schools and a non-executive director of Greencore, an Irish food company.

Students were able to network with Sly and Capgemini staff, including Christine Hodgson, Capgemini CEO, to find out more about working life.
