Launch event and CV workshops! – 03/07/2018

The team had an extremely early start with our launch event scheduled for 7:30 am at the nearby business campus at University of Rwanda.  Project leader Paula presented to senior management including Vice Chancellor Phil Cotton at the University of Rwanda, as well as the full FemEng in Rwanda 2018 team.  Paula explained objectives for the 2018 team, touched on previous work and summarised the workshops our various teams will carry out while in Rwanda.  Despite the early start, the entire team were left feeling motivated and raring to start presenting our workshops to Rwandan high school students!

Following breakfast Paula and Holly from the Glasgow team delivered a CV workshop to the full team. They outlined the layout, content and what employers look for in a good CV.  The workshop was extremely helpful to both Glasgow and Rwandan teams.

Meanwhile Zainab from the Glasgow team and Alexia, Rwandan team leader, spent the day visiting various high schools in Kigali.  After speaking to the staff at the high schools, they were able to organise many more school visits for the coming weeks.  We look forward to visiting as many schools as possible while we are in Rwanda!
