International Women’s Day Celebration

Skills-sharing Workshop and Networking Event hosted by LexisNexis

During early March, our students were lucky enough to hold our International Women’s Day Celebration at our corporate partner LexisNexis’ offices in the City of London. This gave our students a totally new experience of London and the inspirational LexisNexis staff!

The day commenced with a series of pop-up workshops covering exciting areas such as beauty therapy, language exchange, well-being, poetry and a display of stimulating student work.

The event showcased ELATT’s ‘Equal Voices’ project and celebrated the skills that our students can teach each other and others – and much more than that!

After lunch, students interacted with Lexis Nexis specialists and discussed opportunities in fields such as marketing, IT and coding, law, and editorial and content writing.

The opportunity to mix with staff meant that students were exposed to new perspectives and views, creating a memorable day of learning and sharing. The place was buzzing and you could see that everyone involved felt really positive and energised by the atmosphere.

A special thank you to Amy for her enthusiasm and energy throughout the planning process, helping us turn what would otherwise have been a smaller event into something really special and memorable.

Our students told us:

‘I really liked this event, I was very happy when I met everyone and I enjoyed it.’

‘I really loved our event. It was amazing and inspiring. Students met together and did lots of interesting things. It was very good for us.’

‘It was an excellent experience for me. I did speak and learn other words from other languages. Good people, nice event!’

We hope to continue to work closely with the team and bring more popups to LexisNexis very soon!
