BAML takes aim at glass ceilings

BANK of America Merrill Lynch is co-hosting a women’s career speed networking event with the Education and Employers Taskforce charity at the Tate Modern next week, for girls interested in a fledgling career in the arts.

There is perhaps no better a place than the 35 metre high Turbine Hall to inspire a sky’s the limit attitude, or to generate an electric atmosphere of positive change.

As another American export Hillary Clinton declared her intention to run for the 2016 presidency campaign last night, launching inroads into “shattering the highest, hardest glass ceiling” for women in the world of western politics, there is perhaps no better time to inspire the next generation either.

Hosted by Miriam Gonzalez, the event takes place on 23 April from 11am to 1pm in the Turbine Hall, with the charity looking to broaden the horizons of the next generation of young women by encouraging them to break-free of gendered career aspirations.

Nearly 900 pupils between the ages of 13 and 17 will attend to hear 144 female role models at the top-of-their-game from world of film, literature theatre, music and TV talk about their career successes.

The Inspiring Women campaign was launched on 17 October 2013 by Gonzalez, with women from a range of male dominated cross-sector occupations.
