Kingsbury High School’s Head of Computing, Manisha Sanghani and three Sixth Form students were invited to the Capgemini offices in Holborn on Thursday 5th March 2015 to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Capgemini, one of the world’s leading IT and consulting companies, hosted the event with guest speaker Nicky Morgan, Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities.
The lucky Sixth Form Students, Radhika Parmar, Bindiya Ganesh and Jayna Patel, listened to the talk followed by a Q&A session; and were able to network with Nicky Morgan and Capgemini staff, including Christine Hodgson, Capgemini CEO; and Michelle Perkins, Director of the Schools Outreach Programme.
Manisha said “We’ve been really fortunate to have been invited to these wonderful events for the last couple of years. Our students really enjoy seeing what it’s like to work in this corporate setting and benefit immensely from listening to such inspiring guest speakers. One former student was so inspired after attend this event that she applied for a Capgemini apprenticeship and is now fully immersed into the programme.”
