This March marks the 100th International Women’s Day. To celebrate and honour this day, KCC’s Westcountry Wonderwomen Workshop is all set to provide an evening of encouragement, motivation and careers guidance for female students in years 10-13.

This year’s campaign theme has been unveiled as #Balanceforbetter .The campaign focus is on how on how we can create a more gender-balanced world. With events taking place around the world, the Westcountry Wonderwomen Workshop held at KCC will see a whole host of prominent women from across the South West coming together for an evening of inspiration and celebration. 
The aim of West Country Wonder Women is to improve our students’ awareness of a wider range of career paths; as well as to showcase a wealth of inspirational women connected to the South West, offering an exclusive opportunity to gain insight into how they have achieved their goals. 
Our key note speakers and guests feature women from across a wide range of sectors including; the Devon and Cornwall Police Commissioner Alison Hernandez, Doctors of Science and Marine Biology; KCC students who have gained success in the fields of cyber security and architecture; NHS Occupational Therapists; charity spokeswomen and international campaigners; an award winning BBC radio play listed Jazz musician and prominent local CEOs, directors and businesswomen.

A unanimously positive response was given from all of our invited Westcountry Wonderwomen and it is an absolute privilege to have them all on board. The previous two events were a resounding success and we are delighted to be able to offer this unique and exciting opportunity for our students.

The free to attend workshop was founded and created by PR consultant Laura Quick and developed and organised with KCC Teachers, Lorien Joyce and Katie White. They are thrilled to have so many speakers taking part and are looking forward to building on the success of prior events. Tickets are limited so make sure you get one while you can!
