All in a day's work: alumnae help with Careers events

Many of our alumnae continue to provide CLSG with a rich resource of experience, learning, and expertise long after they have graduated. Throughout the unprecedented circumstances of this academic year, alumnae have maintained this tradition of supporting the school and its pupils in inventive ways.  

Alumnae made valuable contributions to the careers department’s virtual Higher Education Evening this month. Students from City and the partnership schools benefitted from presentations on architecture (Emily Wickham, class of 2013), engineering (Jessica Glynn, class of 2012), natural sciences (Zara Khwaja, class of 2017, and Lucy Oswald, class of 2013), and history (Maya and Ania Gordon, classes of 2013 and 2015, respectively). This week has featured careers talks by Victoria Kirby (class of 2003) on her award-winning journalism career, Marie Wilkins (class of 2015) on the complexities of working in the Diversified Industries Team at JP Morgan, Dr Rachel Thompson on her role as a psychologist (class of 1997), and Jenny Griggs (class of 2019) on her route from a Classics degree to the finance sector.  

Biology teacher William Tibbits has created a network of alumnae studying medicine to mentor prospective medical students at City. Iris Maxfield and Florence Butterfield (both class of 2016) returned this LGBT+ History Month to address the school’s Pride Society. Upcoming events such as the Oxbridge teas and the careers convention also rely on generous alumnae. CLSG is grateful for those who have given their time so far. If you would like to get involved in future, please keep in touch.
