On Wednesday 2 December there was a virtual graduation ceremony for two of our year 13 students (Niva and Nazmin) who took part in the Girls Rising Program.
The Facebook Women@ London team has been collaborating with Camden STEAM to launch and deliver a personal development & mentorship programme for 21 young female students from Camden borough. The programme’s main objective was to support girls selected to participate in their development, professional clarity and overall confidence. The girls were also connected to Facebook mentors each across different areas of the business.
The programme kicked off this January 2020 and was due to have 4 in-person sessions intertwined with mentorship connections. Like everything this year, the programme didn’t go completely to plan and we had to quickly pivot it online for the 3rd and 4th sessions. But, overall it has been a great success!
The project will run again this academic year and is open to students in year 12 who wish to apply - If this applies to you, please let Ms Man know
