The results are in for the GDST’s Sixth Form student survey for International Women’s Day
A whopping 88% of GDST Sixth Form students think women have shown themselves to be stronger leaders during the Coronavirus pandemic. This is just one of the figures from a survey the GDST conducted among its Sixth Form students to coincide with International Women’s Day (IWD) on Monday 8 March.
Nearly 400 students responded to the IWD survey, the majority recognising the positive role played by female leaders such as Jacinda Ardern, Nicola Sturgeon, Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan and Sanna Marin of Finland who have been hailed globally for their management of the pandemic in their own countries.
