Women’s Careers and Networking Event

On 3rd March Christ Church kicked off its 40 Years of Women celebrations with a Women’s Careers and Networking Event attended by both alumni and students of the House.

The evening began with a panel discussion. Four former Housewomen, Dr Victoria McCloud, Helen Dorey, Stella Schuck and Jennifer Jones, returned to the House to share their experiences of their respective sectors and their thoughts on topics ranging from the #MeToo movement to how to find a good mentor. The evening was rounded off with a drinks reception hosted in the Buttery and a wonderful dinner in the McKenna Room, where panellists, alumnae and students had the opportunity to network and share their experiences of the House.

Helen Pike, the first woman to become Master of Magdalen College School, Oxford, brought the evening to a close with an inspirational speech in which she encouraged students and alumnae to seize every opportunity.

We are very grateful to all those who attended and particularly to our panellists for their insightful contributions.
