Notting Hill & Ealing High were delighted to host an evening dedicated to networking for alumnae who work or have an interest in the fields of Architecture, Design and Engineering.
The event kicked off with an inspiring discussion by our alumnae panel led by Katie Wilmot (NHEHS 2002) who is an architect and lecturer. She was joined by Dr Kate Crawford (NHEHS 1995), an engineer, Emilie Paine (NHEHS 2007) who is an urban planner, and Kinda Savarino (NHEHS 2012), a graphic designer.
They covered topics relevant to these areas including the lack of women in these sectors, the influences of recent developments in technology and the importance of resilience and doing what you enjoy. They gave advice to young alumnae who are at the start of their careers and touched on the reasons why they got into their current work roles.
A networking drinks reception followed, giving all attendees the opportunity to make connections with each other and ask any further questions of the panel.
