These women have continued to reach levels of success whether as scientists, community workers, educators, leaders, athletes, artists and more.
We have selected a number of women from seven industry sectors: Sports, Media, Culture and Arts, Science and Technology, Banking, Finance and Enterprise, Law and Social Justice, Civic and Community Organisations, Health and Wellbeing and Education and Skills. So far, these are the women we are working with and as the project progresses we will continue to update the list as we go along. Please visit the page regularly for new additions.
