The inauguration ceremony of the new Inspiring Girls program was held last Thursday, October 14, at the Palacio de Santoña, headquarters of the Madrid Chamber of Commerce.
SEK-Ciudalcampo students, participants in the previous edition of the Financial Club program, were invited to the event to receive a recognition for their work.
The Inspiring Girls initiative is focused on increasing girls’ professional ambition as well as their job expectations, especially in less feminized sectors such as STEM. It is supported by companies such as BBVA, EY, Acciona or Pfizer, among others.
Inspiring Girls was founded in the UK by a Spanish lawyer, Miriam González Durántez, and in the early years more than 600,000 girls have learned from more than 26,000 professional volunteers.
During the event, Ms. Urquiola de Palacio, President of the Madrid Arbitration Court; Ms. Eva Serrano, Vice President of the Madrid Chamber of Commerce; and Natalia de Santiago, author of the book Invest in you.
