Global Conference: Inspiring Future Female Leaders

Published by Churcher's College on Thursday 30th of November 2023

On Thursday 28 September, five Lower Sixth girls attended the ‘Global Conference: Inspiring Future Female Leaders’, hosted by Benenden School.

Over 350 students attended in person with a further 700 joining from around the world via live stream.

The day started with HRH Princess Basma of Jordan, a leading figure in global humanitarian causes, joining us by a live link. She was followed by a diverse and powerful group of female leaders including an Olympian, entrepreneurs and leading woman in business. Later in the day, we were enrapt by Baroness Manningham-Buller, former Director-General of MI5 and former Chair of the Wellcome Trust. The final speaker was HRH The Princess Royal, whose speech touched on the changing nature of leadership in the social media age, the role of education in instilling skills for life beyond academia, and what leadership looks like in the public eye.

We were inspired, empowered and challenged to go out into the world as collaborative, kind and confident leaders. Thank you to Benenden and the International Coalition of Girls’ Schools for such a wonderful day.
