In a major move designed to enable every GDST sixth form student to connect with the GDST’s alumnae family, we’ve teamed up with Rungway.com, the mentoring app. Now, at the touch of a button, our students have a way of asking some of the burning questions they have about study and life after school, anywhere and at any time.
We’ve been piloting it with a small group of girls this term, and are planning the full roll-out to all of our schools and academies in the New Year.
Already, some 300 users have signed up to the app, and the feedback is encouraging. One girl said, “It’s amazing that alumnae are happy to give their time like this,” while another said it made her realise she was part of “this group of women, all empowering and supporting each other.” It’s been getting a good response from mentors, too, with one saying, “I would have loved to have been able to seek advice like this when I was growing up” and another adding, “You couldn’t ask these questions on a public forum like LinkedIn. The questions sound utterly heartfelt and I hope the answers are helping.”
