Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has called on schools in Brighton & Hove to take part in a national campaign to highlight the role of ‘Inspiring Women’ in the UK.
The Inspiring Women campaign will see 15,000 women from a wide range of occupations going into state schools over the coming year to speak to 250,000 young women. Any school interested in taking part in the project can register at www.inspiringthefuture.org.
Commenting, Mike said: “I really hope that schools from across Brighton & Hove will help make this laudable campaign a success and embrace the opportunity of welcoming women from a broad range of careers into their classrooms. It is important to inspire young women and what better way to do this than have successful role models come and speak and engage with pupils in school?
