Young women encouraged to aim for the top

9 February 2017

Students from Year 12 recently attended a workshop to launch Deloitte’s Young Women in Leadership programme.

Taking place at Deloitte’s City offices, the event was designed to inspire and encourage them to aim for leadership positions. Using aptitude questionnaires and round table discussions, our students worked on setting themselves ambitious goals for school and for life.

In the words of student Fadime Altun:

‘It was absolutely amazing. I set a clear target during the workshop session to pass my driving theory test and in just two weeks, I will be attending my actual test. It motivated me to keep on going and accomplish my goals in school and in life.’

And student Esra Irdem said:

‘It was a great opportunity to visit Deloitte’s offices and participate in the launch event for Women in Leadership. It made me feel like I am being respected and that I am a potential leader who other students will look up to.’
