Catherine Jones (MGC 1980) OGA Autumn Lecture

In November we welcomed Catherine Jones (MGC 1980) for a OGA Autumn Lecture for our Sixth Form titled 'There is no glass ceiling...'

On Friday 12 November 2021 we welcomed Catherine Jones (MGC 1980) for our OGA Autumn Lecture to Sixth Form students, which was titled ‘There is no glass ceiling…’

Catherine Jones’ current role is at Deloitte as Global Financial Advisory Talent and Learning Leader, and as a women in business she had some great experiences and advice to share with the students about women in leadership, maximising career opportunities, diversity and inclusion in the workplace and what to expect as a member of the workforce of the future.

Catherine began looking at the importance of Diversity in the workplace, and shared some fantastic facts about how workplaces with diversity are:

2x as likely to meet financial targets

3x as likely to be high performing

6x as likely to be innovative and agile

8x as likely to achieve better business outcomes

Catherine also covered what strength means, and how we should look at strength as something that energises you, something you feel absorbed in and fulfilled. Catherine explained how finding and playing to your strengths will make you feel happier, healthier, less stressed and allow you to be more confident in your career and overall, more satisfied.

The lecture was rounded up with some fantastic questions covering subjects such as interview techniques and how to be assertive in the workplace and it was fantastic to see the Sixth Form girls so engaged.

A huge thank you to Catherine for taking the time to come and speak, it was also fantastic hearing of Catherine’s memories of her time at MGC whilst touring around school.
