GE Volunteer activities
Co-leading GirlsGetSET (GGS) for Subsea in Aberdeen and Montrose - along with Kim Kirkham (who co-founded the scheme in Aviation). GGS, is a unique scheme set up to challenge the diversity issue within STEM careers. The scheme aims to encourage more female students to consider a career within a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) profession. This is achieved by providing female secondary school students with an insight into the opportunities that a SET career can offer through a series of engineering challenges and events.
Why you volunteer
Wanted the opportunity to give something back to the local area and as I am passionate to encourage more females to be aware of the great careers available in SET areas, GGS gives me the opportunity to achieve both!
Favourite volunteer project
Each year we hold a Girls Day in Aberdeen, where 150 girls come to site to take part in a number of STEM inspired activities. Chaotic but a lot of fun for both the girls and our volunteers.
Nicknamed 'The Granite City', Aberdeen is famous for its locally quarried granite stone which was used to build London's Houses of Parliaments and Waterloo Bridge.
